If you’re like thousands of New Yorkers every year, you’re planning a trip to Egypt this year. So, of course you are planning on getting your Egypt tourist visa sometime in the near future.
However, if those plans include taking time to take off work, filling out an application, and standing in line at the Embassy, we’ve got some great news for you. Take 2 minutes to read this article and not only save yourself being docked a day’s pay, you’ll forego a lot of headaches and wasted time.
You read that correctly. There is absolutely no need to visit the embassy for a visa to Egypt. No missed work, no cab fare or Uber fees. No traffic and no standing in line for what will seem like an eternity.
With your official US passport, you get to skip it all and enjoy the benefits of modern technology and a government that wants to make tourism a whole lot easier.
Like so many of the businesses in your life, the Egyptian government is making strides to move more and more systems online. One of the first to benefit from this campaign is the Egypt tourism visa program.
In order to further promote tourism and expedite the process, visitors from NYC simply have to complete the online application. Obtaining a visa to Egypt has not only never been easier, it’s also never been faster.
You’ll receive the results of your Egypt visa application via email within 10 business days.
It’s that easy.
In order to ensure that your application is not delayed or denied, you’ll want to ensure that you fill out the application with accurate information of course, but you’ll also be required to follow these steps and meet these requirements.
The application information is completely truthful and matches your passport.
Your passport is valid and will be valid for at least 6 months from the date you state on the application that you expect to arrive in Egypt.
After completely filling out the online application, you’ll be prompted to pay the associated fees. The accepted methods of payment are major credit card (Visa, American Express, MasterCard) or PayPal. While these fees are low, around $100 USD average, they are not dependent on your visa application’s final approval and are not refundable. Another great reason to ensure that your application is accurate.
Lastly, you’ll be directed to the Passport Upload section. It is here that you must upload a clear digital copy of your passport photo. The entire photo must be clear, including the barcode at the bottom, and any image format is acceptable for upload.
That’s all there is to obtain a tourist visa to Egypt for citizens of New York. Simply watch your email and print off at least one copy of your official travel document and you’re ready to visit Egypt as a tourist.
