Aussies can now apply for their Egypt visa online

Posted: 9 July 2018 1:19 pm

The new eVisa will save time at the airport so you can start exploring sooner.

In some of the best news to come out of the usually tedious space of visa applications, the Egyptian government has launched an eVisa website where citizens from countries across Europe, Asia and Australasia can secure their visa before they take off.

What this means for Aussies is that you no longer have to go through the visa-on-arrival process which involved queuing to get an application, filling it out, purchasing a visa sticker and then lining up all over again to present everything at the immigration desk.

The new eVisa is available from now for 46 countries including Australians.

How does the eVisa work?

First, head to the official Egyptvisa.com website. From there, click on “Apply for Egypt e-Visa” on the homepage which will take you to the online application form. Have your passport handy as you’ll need a snap and details from the photo page.

Upon completion, applicants are then required to pay around $34 for a single-entry tourist visa or $81 for a multiple-entry tourist visa.

On approval, the visa will be valid for three months and for a maximum stay of 30 days.

Travellers are encouraged to apply for the visa at least seven days before departure and have a passport with validity of eight months from the date of arrival.
