Visa Costs


Off to Egypt 30th Nov & will be doing a trip to the Pyramids to which we will need a VISA for which can be purchased at the airport(am I correct) How much is this VISA?

When I went to sharm I paid an entry tax of £10 (I think) is there an entry or exit tax when visiting Taba?

Yes, you can get a visa on arrival at the airport. Last year it was £15.

Have fun.

The Official cost of a single entry tourist visa, which you pick up on arrival in Egypt, is US$15, so you should be able to procure one for £10 Sterling; possibly even getting a small amount of change in local currency.

Bank kiosks selling the visa can bormally be found in the immigration halls of Egyptian international airports.

It is often reported, on the Luxor forums, that tour companies & their reps are, not only charging anything upto £20 Sterling for these visas but that they are preventing tourists from gaining access to the bank kiosks, at some airports (The, up to, £5 Sterling difference between the official visa price & that charged by the tour companies adds up to quite a substantial profit for them when you mulitply it by a planeload of tourists).
