Entry formalities

British passport holders travelling to Egypt normally require a visa.

For visits of up to 30 days, you can get a visa on arrival by cash payment. The visa fee is US$25 at approved bank kiosks within airport arrival halls, before reaching immigration counters. There's no need to buy a visa from an agent. In many cases agents will charge more than US$25 for a visa. If you're harassed by an agent, report the incident to the tourist police in the airport terminal.

Alternatively you can get a visa from an Egyptian Consulate outside Egypt before you travel.

Your passport should be valid for a minimum period of 6 months from the date of entry into Egypt.
