The government of Egypt introduced the Electronic Egypt Tourist Visa Authorization in December 2017, allowing citizens of eligible countries to visit Egypt for touristic purposes by completing an online visa application form before departure.
The Egypt Online Tourist Visa allows for single and multiple-entries depending on the applicant’s necessities at the moment of application. The online Egypt e-Visa allows travelers 30 days in the country. The validity of both the single and multiple online visa is 90 days from the date of issue.
The online tourist visa Egypt application form is simple and straightforward, and can be completed within a few minutes. Applicants need to provide passport information, personal and contact details, and current employment status.
To extend the Egyptian e-Visa, travelers must contact the Egypt Department of Immigration while still in Egypt, at least a week prior to the current visa expiry date.
To visit Egypt for other purposes, such as Business activities, foreign citizens are required to contact their nearest Egypt Embassy or Consulate.
