The Government of Egypt has created a website for the issuance of “e-visas”. There are other websites purporting to offer electronic visas, some of which reportedly charge double the official price, but this is the only official Government of Egypt portal for this service. The following countries are eligible to apply through this means in advance of their travel:
- Passport valid for at least 6 months from arrival date.
- e-Visa printout
- Travel itinerary
- Supporting letter e.g. letter from company or invitation letter for business/family visits.
- Hotel bookings/details about places to visit if going as tourist.
