What is the Egypt eVisa?

The Egypt eVisa is your digital key to exploring the country. The online system is a convenient alternative to the traditional visa process that had you visiting an embassy or consulate.

What can you do with the Egypt eVisa?

This visa allows visitors to enter Egypt for tourism, business, or medical purposes.

What can’t you do with the Egypt eVisa?

This Egypt tourist visa does not allow you to work, live, and/or study in Egypt. Check the Egyptian government website for more info if you want to travel to the country for these reasons.

Who can apply for the Egypt eVisa?

The Egypt Visa opens doors for travelers from over 70 countries, including the European Union, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

Are you on the list? Our Visa Checker Tool is your go-to for checking your eligibility.

Who is visa-exempt for Egypt?

Here's an excellent tip for US, EU, and UK tourists heading to the Sinai Red Sea resorts like Sharm El Sheikh, Dahab, Nuweiba, or Taba: You won't need a visa for up to 14 days. You'll get a free entry permission stamp instead.

But, if your adventures take you beyond these resorts, you'll need to secure a visa before you arrive in Egypt.

Suppose you're from Bahrain, Hong Kong, Israel, Kuwait, Lebanon, Macao, Oman, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, or Malaysia. In that case, the good news is that you don't need a visa to enter Egypt.

However, you might still need extra documents or other permissions. It's a good idea to check with the embassy to ensure you've covered everything.

Do minors require the Egypt eVisa?

Traveling with kids? They must have their passports and Egypt eVisa, no matter their age. Parents or legal guardians can complete the visa application form on their kids’ behalf.

How long is the Egypt eVisa valid?

We offer two types of Egypt visas: a single-entry and a multiple-entry eVisa.

  • Single-entry Visa: With this option, you can enter Egypt once and stay for up to 30 days.

  • Multiple-entry Visa: This option lets you make multiple trips to Egypt and stay up to 30 days Per Entry. It is super handy for frequent travelers, especially for business or family visits. Depending on your application details, the duration can vary – from three months to a year.

Is it possible to extend the Egypt eVisa?

Need to extend your Egypt eVisa? Here's how to do it:

Head to the immigration office in Cairo to apply for an extension. Online extensions aren't an option for the Egyptian visa.

Try to get there early, like an hour before they open, to dodge the long lines. They're open from 8:00 am to 3:30 pm.

Make sure you apply for the extension before your current visa expires. Overstaying can lead to fines or even a ban from re-entering Egypt. So, remember to keep an eye on your visa's expiry date and plan your trip to the immigration office accordingly!
