Egypt Entry Visa Requirements

All visitors to Egypt need to obtain a visa to enter the country unless they are from a visa-exempt country. There are different types of entry visa to Egypt: the visa on arrival, and the Egypt e-Visa.

The Egypt visa on arrival has been available for a long time. It is possible to obtain one at the Egyptian border. Eligible citizens queue, apply for, process, and pay for the visa on arrival.

Travelers can obtain an Egypt tourist visa on arrival at immigration kiosks at any of the airport terminals. It is necessary to queue, fill out the form, and purchase the visa sticker to present, along with your passport at the immigration desks.

There are a couple of Egypt visa on arrival requirements: travelers must be from one of the eligible countries and have a passport with six months’ validity remaining.

You cannot pay the visa fee with a credit or debit card so it is necessary to take cash with you. It’s also best to take the exact amount to save trouble.
