Egypt requires visas for all tourists before arrival starting May 15th
You can only get visas at the airport if you “are part of a tour company” but no longer for individuals. Very weird move imho especially since tourism was starting to pick up lately. Go figure, the surprise is the rule apparently nowadays.
Don’t be discouraged by that, it should be easy and without complications to get a visa from the nearest Egyptian consulate. Don’t change your plans if you were coming 🙂
“Egyptian authorities have now made it a little harder for tourists to enter Egypt. Starting 15 May, individual tourists arriving in Egypt will be required to apply for a visa at an Egyptian consulate prior to arrival at the airport, according to a press statement sent out on Tuesday by the Egyptian Tourism Ministry.”
