  • Hello Mr happy
    No Visa required to be obtained to visit Egypt for the moment .American or European tourists can visit Egypt without a need for a visa.

    Actually you will find the visa for many nationalities is issued upon arrival; usually costing $15 however it depends who you buy it from at the airport.

    If you are flying directly into Sharm El Sheikh or Taba, then you will not need a visa for a one or two weeks stay. If you plan to visit anything outside these resorts or stay longer, then a visa on arrival is required.
  • Most nationalities (not all) can obtain a tourist entry visa at any of the major ports of entry to Egypt. However, a foreigner arriving in Egypt for purposes other than tourism, e.g. work, study, etc. is required to be in possession of a pre-arrival visa. Visas may be obtained from Egyptian diplomatic and consular missions abroad. Check with the nearest Egyptian consulate for specific details and regulations relevant to your nationality.
