The Egyptian visa price is to rise in the summer of 2017.
It is believed that the rationale for the increase is to bring the visa price in line with other countries.
The Government Ministry has reviewed the cost of visas for Egyptian citizens visiting the UK, Europe and America and found them to be substantially more than to enter Egypt.
The Egyptian Tourism Ministry has issued a statement via the news agency MENA confirming the intention to raise visas from US$25 to US$60. We believe that this will come into effect from 1st July 2017.
