Say goodbye to trips to the embassy.
The Ministry of Tourism has launched an e-visa service for around 50 countries, making it easier for tourists to get travel authorisation to Egypt, according to Egypt Independent.
This applies for single or multiple e-visas, and it can be done simply by applying online and waiting for the (hopeful) approval sent by e-mail, saving you that dreaded trip to the embassy. The e-visa is valid for 3 months, and allows a maximum stay of 30 days.
Also in tourism today, the Ministry of Tourism has launched a promotional digital TV channel called "Experience Egypt" on Instagram’s view-platform IGTV aiming to attract more tourists.
