Learn more: Egyptian Single Entry eVisa for British passport holders

Everything you need to know for British citizens

Travelers need a visa to visit Egypt for Tourism. Travelers can obtain a Single Entry eVisa and enter Egypt once for up to 30 days. An eVisa is the fastest and easiest way of obtaining a visa for Egypt because travelers can submit their application and supporting documents online. Once the application is approved, travelers receive their eVisa confirmation electronically. Travelers visiting the Sharm El Sheikh, Dahab, Nuweiba and Taba resorts do not need a visa if they stay no more than 15 days. Travelers to these resorts are granted a permission stamp upon arrival. An eVisa or visa on arrival is required to travel outside these resorts. The online Egyptian eVisa portal does not currently accept applications from variant British passport holders (those from British Overseas Territories and Crown Dependencies). Travelers with these passports can apply for a visa at their nearest Consulate or obtain a Visa on arrival in Egypt.
