Applying for your Egypt Tourist Visa

Recently, there have been changes to the travel requirements for Canadian citizens wishing to visit Egypt. Canadians must now apply for a visa at the Egyptian embassy or consulate in Canada before their trip. It is not possible to obtain an e-visa or a regular tourist visa upon arrival in Egypt.

However, once Canadians have secured their visa through the embassy or consulate, they can easily travel to Egypt and enjoy all the attractions it has to offer!

Egyptian Government and Covid-19

Do Canadian travelers have to spend time in quarantine when they arrive in Egypt, and can Canadians travel to Egypt regardless of their Covid-19 vaccination status? There are no longer any quarantine requirements for people arriving in Egypt, and both vaccinated travelers and non-vaccinated travelers are welcome to visit. Foreign nationals no longer have to show proof of vaccination, and Covid-19 testing is also no longer required.

In June 2022, the Egyptian government lifted the last remaining Covid-19 travel restrictions. As such, Egypt is 100% open for international travel.

Can Canadians Travel to Egypt without Vaccinations and Health Insurance?

Egypt has no mandatory requirement in relation to health insurance and immunization. Unvaccinated travelers and those without medical insurance are welcome to visit Egypt, but they do so at their own risk.

At the very least, foreign nationals, including Canadians, should consider getting vaccinated against Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, and Typhoid. Hepatitis A immunization is especially recommended. Hepatitis A is spread through contaminated food and/or contaminated water.

Foreign nationals are at risk of contracting Hepatitis A regardless of where they stay or where they eat during their stay in Egypt. Under no circumstances should you drink tap water during your stay in Egypt. Instead, only drink bottled water.

Visitors who believe they will be in close contact with animals should also consider Rabies immunization.

As far as health insurance is concerned, Egypt Tours Plus recommends that all travelers get good health insurance before visiting Egypt, or any other destination, for that matter. Like nearly all foreign nationals, Canadian travelers cannot rely on Canadian consular services to cover the cost of medical treatment and/or emergency medical evacuation, should it be necessary.

Can Canadians Travel to Egypt from Israel?

Some Middle East countries will deny you entry if your passport contains evidence of you having visited Israel. So, can Canadians travel to Egypt after visiting Israel? Yes, because Israel is aware of this, and as a result, the Israeli authorities no long stamp your passport, and neither do the stick a visa in your passport. If you exit Israel via a land border crossing, your passport may be stamped, but you can avoid this happening to you if you mention your concern to the immigration officials at the border.

Even if your passport does show evidence of you having visited Israel, this will not be held against you when you arrive in Egypt. Many Israelis visit Egypt, so Canadians have nothing to worry about even if they have just spent some time in Israel.
