All information regarding the Egypt visa
Do you want to apply for a visa for a holiday to Egypt in 2023 or 2024? All citizens of the European Union, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom can easily apply for their Egypt visa online. It is therefore no longer necessary to wait in line at a visa counter on arrival in Egypt. Keep in mind that children and babies also need their own visa.
What kind of visa do I need? The visa you can apply for online is sent by e-mail as a PDF document. It is therefore also called the electronic visa (e-visa). The Egypt e-visa is suitable for tourists who want to stay in Egypt for up to 30 consecutive days, for a holiday or to visit friends or family. Applying for an e-visa online is the easiest way to meet the visa requirement.
Do you not have a tourist travel purpose, or do you want to stay in Egypt longer than 30 consecutive days? Then you need to make an appointment at the Egyptian consulate to apply for a different type of visa.
Travelling to Egypt multiple times with one visa
When applying, you can choose between two types of e-visas for Egypt. It is possible to apply for a single-entry visa or a multiple-entry visa. The single-entrry visa has a maximum validity of 90 days, and the multiple entry visa has a maximum validity of 180 days. During the validity period, a single-entry visa allows you to travel to Egypt once, while a multiple-entry visa can be used for multiple trips during these 180 days. Both visas can be applied for using the same application form. For both visas, each stay in Egypt should not exceed 30 consecutive days.

Requirements for applying for an e-visa to Egypt
To be able to use the electronic tourist visa for Egypt, you must comply with several visa requirements. The most important requirements are:
- You have a passport that is valid for at least another 6 months on the day of arrival in Egypt
- You are travelling with the same passport as the one with which the visa application was made
- At the time of visa application, you already know at least one accommodation address in Egypt
- On arrival in Egypt, you can show where you are going to stay for each night
- You can show all tickets of the remaining flights and cruises upon arrival
- If you are staying with friends or family, bring a letter of invitation from them
Do you not yet have a detailed travel plan? That is not a problem. You do not need to show that you have planned your trip until you arrive. However, when you apply for your visa, you must indicate when you expect to arrive in Egypt. This may be an estimate. You may still decide to arrive in Egypt up to 30 days earlier or 30 days later than the estimated date of arrival, sometimes even later. You can read exactly how this works on the page about the period of validity of the Egypt visa.

Prompt and professional. For an 80-year-old man to have completed the application so easy, must have the simplicity of it!
Exceptional service. Superfast. Customer service answered quickly to my doubts. Much easier than my last experience when applying through the Egyptian embassy in London.
Very easy form to fill in, giving all the information that would be needed. Quick return of approval, and easy to download and print.
