Unfortunately there is no way to travel internationally without a passport. You would not be allowed by the airline to even check in let alone board a plane without a passport

I am a Kenyan citizen living in Sweden. I also have a permanent resident permit in Sweden. I would like to visit Egypt for a week. Can I get a visa on arrival at the airport or should I obtain a pre-visa? Please help.
Kenyans require a visa for Egypt, the fact you have permanent residence is irrelevant you still need a visa.
You need to apply at the Egyptian embassy Stockholm
Hi,,how many weeks/months should I wait for my egypt visit visa to be approved? I applied here on egypt embassy here in the Philippines.I am so stressed now maybe they will reject my application,coz its been two weeks already,,and still not yet done or still they dont call me
.,,,IF ever THEY will REJECT MY APPLICATION,,DO I NEED TO WAIT ALSO?or they will call me right away???
It will take 20 to 30 days to get the visa according to my friend, But I haven’t any personal experience regarding this. Yes, I had visited Egypt & got the visa easily because the travel agency named Mantis Tours from which I booked my trip they providing me the tour visa to Egypt.
