    Hi

    I am a Singaporean, living and working in London. I am planning to go to Sharm el Shiek at the end of June. The problem is my current uk visa is due to expire in august, the egyptian consulate website says non EU passports need to have at least 6 months valid on their passports. I can't renew my visa more than a month before its due to expire. Does that mean that i would definitely be refused the egyptian visa if i apply for it? What other options do I have?

    thanks and regards

    You will get the entry visa to Egypt once you arrival to Cairo airport or sharm el sheikh airport for 15.00 USD Per Person.
    Any requirements are mostly appreciated.

    hi sara,
    actually it's not confirmed yet and they still discuss it , however most of people think that it shall be refused because of the charter flights which is not a planned trip and people can travel at anytime they want getting vis on arrival.

    Moses,
    Thanx for the help. I will hopefully travel to Sharm and Tanta after staying in Cairo for a while. It's still a bit unsettled there so hope it will be safe. I will stay with a family i have known for 4 years and en shalla have a great time and rest.

    Hi am a filipina and iam intending to go to sharms el shiekh only for a day to meet my egyptian fiance, am a nurse from saudi arabia. Its it possible for me to obtain the sinia visa only? Answers will be most loved. Thanks.
  • Hi there,

    I am wondering if I need a visa to go to Sharm El Sheikh for 8 days because my passport is Venezuelan (I am from Venezuela) and I've just got married with a British citizen. I currently live in the uk because I got a fiancee visa to get married here. My visa will expire on the 1/06/2014 so I don't know if I should apply first for my UK temporary residency here before going to Egypt also we have booked our trip for the next month.
    Thanks
  • A UK fiancee visa is not a multiple entry visa, so if you leave the UK you will not be allowed back in. You are supposed to marry within the six month validity and apply for your thirty month settlement visa once you are married. 

    You need to apply as soon as possible for leave to remain using form FLR(M) you can apply in person or by post. It was very silly to book a holiday before you were granted a spouse visa. Just because you were granted a fiancee visa does not mean that you  are automatically granted a spouse visa. 
  • Thanks Alethia,it sounds logical so I am going to apply as soon as  I  can for my spouse one and then If I am lucky I could go for my holidays on the planned date.
    Take care.
  • Yes, you will need a visa. Depending on your nationality, costs and procedures can differ. If you're an American citizen, you can purchase your visa at the airport upon arrival at a cost of $15 (US) per person. However, different nationalities have different rules.
  • For Filipino nationality you will need Visa in advance - Just through the Egyptian Embassy in Jakarta - Good Luck
  • Hi i'm indian passport holder. And i want to visit egypt as a tourist just for 5-7 days. Can i get visa on arrival? And if i get pre arrival visa then can i buy entery visa sticker from cairo int.airport? Please reply me...
  • Indian citizens must apply for a visa to enter Egypt from the Egyptian Embassy in India before they travel.
