Once travelers have gathered the required documents, they can apply for their Egyptian e-Visa for British citizens.
The process is done entirely online by completing an Egyptian e-Visa application form from the traveler’s smartphone, tablet, computer, or another internet-enabled device.
The application takes less than 15 minutes to complete and will ask for the traveler’s basic information, contact details, and passport data. There is also a section that will ask about the applicant’s intended plans in Egypt, including the address of their accommodation and the intended date of arrival.
Before submitting the application, travelers are encouraged to go through the form and double-check to make sure the information is accurate and spelled correctly. If there is a mistake on the application, Egyptian Immigration authorities may refuse to issue an e-Visa to the traveler or it may take longer to process.
Once the application is complete and the fees are paid, all that’s left to do is to wait for approval. It normally takes up to 7 business days in order to get approval for the Egyptian e-Visa. For this reason, we advise all travelers to apply for the Egyptian e-Visa from the UK ahead of time so that there is plenty of processing time for the visa to be approved.
Applicants who are traveling with children or other family members should note that each person is required to apply separately for their Egyptian visa online.
