Most tourists and visitors to Egypt can obtain an entry visa at any ports of entry. All foreigners arriving in Egypt should have a valid passport (with at least 6 months left before expiration) to get your entry visa. However, the entry visa can also be obtained from Egyptian Diplomatic and Consular Missions abroad, or when in Egypt ( for extension or renewal) from the visa department at the Travel Documents, Immigration and Nationality Administration (TDINA) at Mogamma building located at Tahrir square in Cairo city center.

There are 2 types of visas in Egypt:

  1. Egyptian Tourist Visa:

    This visa is valid for one month, but the conditions of the Egyptian tourist visa vary from one country to another. Some countries allow their citizens to enter Egypt without a visa. There are countries that are not required to do so and are granted entry visas upon arrival at an Egyptian airport.

  2. Entry visa to Egypt:

    This visa is not specific to a particular category. It may be used by those who wish to study in Egypt, who would like treatment, who would like to work, visit, work or similar. Egypt Entry Visa is valid only for travel within three months from the date of issue and is valid only for one month stay in Egypt, beginning on the date of arrival.

P.C.: If you have a reason to extend your stay, you can do that from the Ministry of Interior Affairs in Egypt after declaring the reasons for that and their acceptance for that reasons.
