Posted 27.04.17
New tourist electronic visa in Egypt set for June 2017 Tourism Minister Yehia Rashed said Egypt will start executing a brand new visa structure on the 1st June which will benefit tourists.

"Under this new structure, any visitor around the world will have the right to apply for an electronic visa," Rashed told Al-Masry Al-Youm on the sidelines of the Arab Tourism Forum in Dubai Wednesday.

Egypt will show a list of Countries who can enter Egypt by secure a visa, Rashed said.

Restrictions imposed on the entry of citizens from the Arab Maghreb Countries to Egypt have been eliminated, he included. These facilities are expect to restore the stream of tourism to Egypt.

The Cabinet officially authorised the proposed new electronic visa in March and will be all set up by May. However, as per the Ministers announcement, this will be put off to June.

You can pay and receive the electronic visas, or e-visas, before you travel via the online system which will definitely quicken up the immigration and passport control at the airports.

The project plans to revamp the travel and migration system to keep up to date with the latest technology systems around the World. The new system will ease the burden on security authorities and tourists who visit Egypt, Minister of Communications and Information Technology Yasser al-Qady said before at a press conference at the Cabinet headquarters.

"Tourists will be able to apply for a visa online via a bar code they will receive. After the approval of the Egyptian authorities, a copy of the visa is sent to them electronically," the minister said in a statement back in March.
