Before, it was a time-consuming and troublesome thing to apply for a visa on arrival as travelers need to prepare many kinds of papers. Also, once travelers land, they need to wait in long line at the immigration office for going to the visa on arrival window, where the payment must be made only in US dollars. By contrast, the process of applying for an e-visa is simpler, quicker and more convenient for travelers to visit Egypt.

Facts about the new e-Visa:

  • Applicants need to complete a simple online application to apply for an e-Visa. It is advised to start the application at least 7 days before departure.
  • With it, travelers can visit Egypt for a maximum duration of 30 days from the date of entry.
  • It is valid to use for a period of 3 months from the date of issuance.
  • A single-entry e-visa is priced at $25, and a multiple-entry visa is at $60.
  • Payment shall be made on a credit or debit card.
  • The requirements of entry: a passport valid for at least eight months, a printout of the e-visa, and the travel itinerary (including accommodation details).
