  • Visas on arrival will continue to be issued to eligible foreign nationals until a more formal electronic visa issuance system is introduced. This comes as a clarification to the previously-announced restriction.

    Egypt’s decision to retract the visa on arrival program is aimed at improving national security by monitoring the flow of visitors to the country.

    What This Means for Foreign Nationals

    Foreign nationals seeking to travel to Egypt should contact the Egyptian consular post in their country of residence to determine whether they need to obtain a consular visa.
