VISAS for Egypt (from U.K.)

This is general information about getting your visa for Egypt.

www. or Thompson Holidays : Egypt Visa

I found it very easy. When you arrive at the airport in Egypt, just before you go through passport control, you will see a small office where you can purchase your visa.  It cost about £10 or 100 Egyptian Pounds. They also accept euros and dollars.

(You will not need a visa to travel to Sharm el Sheikh, Dahab, Nuweibo or Taba for up to 14 days, and if your passport contains an Israeli stamp, you will need to contact the Passport Office.)

      Hi Jonathon – My page layout is the suggested appearance by wordpress but I customised the pictures. Go into ‘Appearance’ in the menu, then click on ‘Header’ and then ‘Background’ to add your own pictures. Happy blogging!

    Howdy just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the images aren’t loading correctly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different internet browsers and both show the same results.
