IMPORTANT: Independent visitors to Egypt entry visas

Post Posted: Fri Sep 09, 2011 6:28 am

Newspaper reports today say that visitors to Egypt - other than those travelling in large package groups - will need to get entry visas from the Egyptian Embassy in their own country before coming to Egypt and will not be able to get them at the airport.

This may start as soon as NEXT WEEK.

This decision has NOW BEEN REVERSED by the Egyptian cabinet.

So, for now, it's 'visas at the airport' as before.

One of several newspaper reports on the matter:
