Visa Requirements for Egyptian Citizens

The rules and regulations determining what type of visa or travel permit (if any) is required for Egyptian passport holders to enter foreign countries are known as visa requirements for Egyptian residents Update.
Regarding the number of countries that an Egyptian passport allows entry to, according to the Henley Passport Index, the country currently ranks 93rd in the world.
The Egyptian passport allows its holder to visit about 50 countries without having to apply for a visa before the trip. For Egyptian citizens, the criteria for applying for a visa vary depending on the destination visited and previously established rules. Different types of visas may be required for visits depending on the reason for travel and the amount of time you want to spend in different countries.
Egyptian citizens can apply for visas for many countries online, at the embassy or upon arrival. An e-visa is the easiest type of travel permit to obtain as the entire process can be completed in just a few minutes from home. On the other hand, embassy visas are the most difficult to get because they require going through a complicated application process, attaching many supporting documents, and sometimes going through visa interviews. Additionally, all Egyptian visitors can apply for and obtain visas at the borders of countries that offer visa-on-arrival services. Dozens of countries have waived visas for Egyptian citizens. This means that all Egyptian citizens with a valid passport can travel without needing a visa. Be sure to read on to find out what requirements currently apply to Egyptian tourists visiting abroad.

Electronic visa

Egyptians are free to use the electronic travel authorization system whenever possible.

Egyptian passport holders must apply directly at their respective consulates or embassies for visas to travel to more than 150 foreign countries, including short-term tourist visas, regardless of the reason for the visit or the length of stay.
 
Most countries issue residence and work visas only through other countries’ embassies and consulates. However, if Egyptian citizens wish to move or work in another country, they will need to apply for a visa. This is done through the diplomatic mission of the selected target country. To obtain an embassy visa, visitors must fill out an application form and submit relevant documents.
Additionally, some embassies conduct personal interviews with all applicants. Applying for an embassy visa for Egyptian tourists usually takes longer than applying for an e-visa through the government website.
 
Additionally, processing times are often longer. Submit your application before you plan to travel.

Visa-free countries

Due to international agreements between Egypt and several nations, Egyptian nationals are permitted to travel to some countries without a visa.

Holders of Egyptian passports are currently exempt from visa requirements in approximately 25 countries globally.

Visa exemption for inhabitants of Egypt usually is only granted for short-term stays for the purposes of tourism, recreation, leisure, as well as business and transit.

Traveling visa-free allows you to visit a selected foreign country for even up to three months. However, the lengths of permitted stay differ between various destinations. Thus, it’s essential to check the established rules before booking your trip.

All you have to do to travel under visa exemption is simply prepare your valid Egyptian passport and present it to the customs officials upon arrival. Make sure that your travel document will not expire for the whole duration of the planned trip.
