Visa Information

Your application will be checked and hand carried to the Embassy, and is usually processed in three business days.

The Egypt tourist or business visa is issued for a single entry within three months, for stay of up to 30 days. Multiple entries are issued for business travelers on written request. A double entry visa can be issued for tourists on written request, must show copy of itinerary indicating two entries.

The visa may be extended, on a monthly basis, by showing receipts for currency exchange at the rate of USD $180.00 per month.

All visitors to Egypt must register with immigration/police within seven days of arrival, or face a fine upon departure. Hotels and tour operators will perform the registration, which is evidenced by a triangular registration stamp in the passport.

If registering yourself, register at the Mugamma building in Cairo. It is a very simple process, which usually takes a few minutes at most and is free of charge.
