Egypt Visa Information

Updated: 08th April 2021

Visa Requirements

Visas are required by all visitors to Egypt.

E-Visa. You can obtain an e-Visa for tourism purposes prior to travel by completing an application and making payment online. The e-Visa can be obtained up to 3 months before you travel and is valid for 30 days from the day you enter the country. The e-Visa is available to a long list of eligible countries and the Government of Egypt is constantly adding to the list. The current cost of a single entry e-Visa for tourism purposes is USD25 or equivalent. The visa cost is set to rise to USD60 and may do so at anytime and without notice.

We recommend you secure an e-Visa prior to travel as it will speed up the immigration process on your arrival.

Online applications can be completed at: https://www.visa2egypt.gov.eg

Visa upon arrival. It still remains possible for nationals of some countries to procure their tourist visa upon arrival at Cairo International Airport. Please contact your nearest Egyptian Embassy or Consulate to see if this is available to you. The current cost of the visa is USD25 and is payable in USD CASH ONLY. Although not official, a visa can near always also be paid in equivalent GBP or Euro (cash only) according to the exchange rate of the day. The visa cost upon arrival is also set to rise to USD60 - again this may happen without notice. Please note that in the event of visa refusal at port of entry, On The Go Tours cannot be held responsible.

Important: South African, Chinese and passport holders from a number of other countries are unable to obtain an e-Visa or Visa upon arrival. Citizens of these countries must obtain an Egyptian Tourist Visa prior to travel. Please contact your nearest Egyptian Embassy or Consulate for further details.

After booking your holiday, please provide us with your passport details as soon as possible so that we can proceed to book trains and flight tickets on your behalf, if included within your holiday.

If undertaking our Road to Jordan, Festive Road to Jordan, Pyramids to Petra or Temples Tombs & Treasury tours you will need to procure yourself both an Egyptian and Jordanian visa. And on our Pyramids Petra & Promised Land tour you will need an Egyptian, Jordanian and Israeli visa.
