An e-Visa is an official document permitting entry into and travel within Egypt.
Applicants obtain their visas electronically after entering required information and making payments by a credit or debit card.
Passport control officers at ports of entry can verify your e-Visa on their system.
As in the case of other visas, respective Egyptian officials at the ports of entry reserve the right to deny entry into Egypt to a holder of an e-Visa without any explanation.
You are advised to create an e-Visa application at least 10 working business days prior to your departure.
On arrival in Egypt you must present the following:)
- Passport valid for at least eight months after return to Canada;
- e-Visa printout;
- Round trip or onward air ticket;
- Supporting letter (e.g. invitation letter for family/friend visits.); and Hotel bookings/details about places to visit if going as tourist.
