Egypt Visa Requirements

Flag of Egypt

Visitors to Egypt are required to have a passport valid for at least six months from the date of entry. With the exception of the US and European Union citizens, all visitors must register with the police within one week of arrival in Egypt. If staying in a hotel, this is usually done by hotel management.

Tourist visas are required for nationals of most countries. They can be obtained at Egyptian embassies and consulates before arrival, but most travelers obtain their Visa upon entry to Egypt. Citizens of the following countries are required to get the visa before arriving in Egypt: Afghanistan, Algeria, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bangladesh, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Chechnya, Croatia, Georgia, India, Indonesia, Iraq, Iran, Israel, Kazakhstan, Kirghizia, Lebanon, Macedonia, Malaysia, Moldavia, Montenegro, Morocco, Pakistan, Palestine, Philippines, Russia, Serbia, Slovenia, Sri-Lanka, Tadzhikistan, Thailand, Tunisia, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, Uzbekistan and all African countries.

There are two types of tourist visa: a single-entry visa is valid for three months and entitles the holder to stay in Egypt for one month and a multiple-entry visa that is valid for six months and entitles the holder to visit Egypt maximum 3 times, but still with a total of one month stay.

Visa is not required for citizens of the US, the UK and EU who travel to the area of Sinai between Sharm el-Sheikh and Taba and stay there for up to 14 days. Visitors will receive an entry permission stamp on arrival, but they need to have the visa if they intend to leave the area (even for sightseeing or diving trips).
