Getting Here

All visitors to Egypt must obtain a tourist visa and have a passport that is VISA Egyptvalid for at least six months. The visa is available from Egyptian consulates abroad but most people get them on the spot at Cairo, Luxor and Hurgarda Airports on arrival. It is generally cheaper, though you may have to queue for a while to complete the painless process. The visa allows you to stay in Egypt for one month. Remember to keep aphotocopy of all the important pages of any documents, in case they are lost or stolen. (E.G. passport, medical insurance)


The best time to visit Egypt is October through May. Temperatures vary between 60 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. The nights will be cool but most days are still sunny. December through February aren't the best times for swimming in the Mediterranean though, it gets quite cold and rainy. Watch out for dust storms from March until May. If you don't mind swampy temperatures above 100 degrees Fahrenheit and want to save a little money, visit Egypt in the summer.
