Travelling to Cairo, Egypt

  • Foreign nationals must have a passport valid for at least 6 months. The majority of nationalities also need a visa. Citizens of just 10 countries can visit Egypt without a visa for a limited time.Travellers from more than 70 countries can get a visa for Egypt online. The Egyptian eVisa is the most convenient option for visitors, the application process is 100% online. Anyone not eligible for the eVisa needs to get an Egyptian visa through the embassy or consulate.
  • Eligible travellers can queue and pay for a visa on arrival in Egypt. If you opt for the visa on arrival, you have to wait until you arrive in Egypt to apply. For greater peace of mind, it is preferred to arrange their visa before traveling since you are not guaranteed a visa on arrival at the border. Both the e-Visa and the visa on arrival allow you to stay in Egypt for up to 30 days.
  • Delegates from countries like Ghana, Ethiopia and Angola, should apply at the Egyptian embassy in their country, as there is no online visa and they can’t get it at the airport here upon arrival. It takes around 3 weeks to get the visa.

  • We recommend everybody check the rules of the Egyptian embassy in their country to know all the details.

  • Our team can support your visa application with an invitation letter if necessary.
