  • Hi ,

    I am Sorry you have to apply for the visa in thailand before you come to Egypt as if you will get it at the airport , it will take a long time to get it so it's better to apply for it in the Egyptian Embassy in Thailand and it lasts for three months , hope this will help you .

    Hi Marian

  • Hi ,

    The people from Asia , have to get the visa from their country before they arrival to Egypt , i have checked for you about that so i am sure 100 % , you have to get it from Thailand and it lasts for three months , some people just come without getting the visa and they thought that they will be able to get it from the airport as you want to do but they have to stay alot of time in the airport with alot of police , alot of security to check with you before letting you enter the country so why to waste and start your visit to your lovely country with such a problems !!
    try to get the visa from Thailand before your coming to Egypt , it will save alot of troubles to you .
    For the pick up from the airport , you don't need Egyptian to pick you up , you can be by yourself , it's just if you wanna avoid hassling with the people and the taxi drivers .

    Hope this will help .

    First, Marian is right you have to take your visa from your country first
    Second, there are no rooms for rent in heliopolis
    There are only apartments and renting them out is too costly
    If this is your first visit to Egypt, I suggest to spend some time with egyptian family
    You can then independence
    Dear not be afraid
    The Egyptians are very friendly people
    If you like the idea, I am ready for hosting you as a sister
    Of course, we can communicate through mail
    To know about me and my family
    Remember, I am not trying to make money
    I offer this service because I love my country and I want to help you

    I think haveing your own appartment or studio will be better , because the first impression , culture and habits are diferent .
    if you will have your own Studio you can practise your life by your way ,but having a family don't know them and they don't know you will be a bit dificult , but you can meet them and if you find comfortable you can move there.
    You can find some studio in Egypt heliopolis , or if you will take 3 stars hotel it might be cheaper as you can pay about 30 USD per night including breakfast , and you avoid cleaning and preparing , beside it's more security having a room at hotel .
    once you find a good family you can join them
    If you need to assist you for finding hotel you may contact me ([email protected] )
