By applying online for the Egypt Visa, you do not have to visit the consulate or embassy.
You can submit all the required documents, information and pay for visa fees online. If your visa application is approved, you will receive visa copy via email as a .PDF file.
This newly implemented process is intended to streamline the Egypt Visa, and promote tourism to Egypt. Now, people traveling to Egypt for tourism purposes can apply via an online platform and attain the travel authorization much quicker as opposed to the traditional Egypt Visa application, which can be time consuming.
