An e-Visa is an official document permitting entry into and travel within Egypt.

  • The e-Visa is an alternative to visas issued at the ports of entry.
  • Applicants obtain their visas electronically after entering required information and making payments by a credit or debit card.
  • The link to download your e-Visa will be emailed to you.
  • Passport control officers at ports of entry can verify your e-Visa on their system.
As in the case of other visas, respective Egyptian officials at the ports of entry reserve the right to deny entry into Egypt to a holder of an e-Visa without any explanation.

The approximate issuing time is 72 hours.
