News 23 Sept ’11: Visa Rules

The Tourism Department of the Egyptian Government made a surprising announcement recently to the effect that visas would no longer be available to individuals arriving at Egyptian airports. Besides limited visas for tourist groups, all other individual visas would have had to be applied for beforehand from the Egyptian Consulates in the country of departure.

A sudden turn-around to freeze this decision was then made, just as unexpectedly.

At the moment, and for the forseeable future, visas will still be given on landing in Egypt, at the airport. (From a little office just before passport control. Cost – about 150 Egyptian Pounds/£15) More info here.
