Passports and Visa Requirements
One of the first things to be aware of is that just like with all countries, both Egypt and Jordan have specific requirements regarding passports and visas. To begin with, your passport should be valid for a minimum of 6 months as from the time of your arrival in both Egypt and Jordan.
Egyptian Visa Requirements for Indians
At present, Indian nationals can not apply for an e-visa, and neither are they able to obtain a visa on arrival in Egypt. A valid visa must be obtained in India, either at the Embassy of Egypt in New Delhi, or at the Egyptian Consulate office in Mumbai. Providing you have all the necessary documentation, the process typically takes 2 to 3 working days and costs 1,900 Rupees for a single entry tourist visa.
Applicants are no longer required to attend an interview, and the application can also be submitted by a third party on your behalf. In order to qualify for a visa, the following documents must be submitted:
- Completed and signed visa application form
- 2 passport-sized photographs
- A letter of request to the consular (cover letter)
- Confirmed air tickets
- Confirmed hotel bookings
- A printed copy of your travel itinerary
- A bank statement covering the last 6 months and showing a minimum balance of 50,000 Rupees, signed and stamped by the bank
- Tax returns of the past 3 years (not mandatory)
- Copies of the front and last page in your passport
- Your original passport.
NOTE: While your visa will typically be valid for a period of 90, your stay in the country cannot exceed 30 days as from the day you arrive.
Jordan Visa Requirements for Indians
The good news for anyone booking Egypt and Jordan tours from India is that the Jordanian Tourism Board has recently announced that Indian nationals are now able to obtain a visa on arrival at any Jordanian border crossing. This single entry visas allow you to remain in the country for up to 30 days. Visas can also still be applied for at Jordanian diplomatic missions in India prior to traveling to Jordan.
The only requirements for a visa on arrival in Jordan are:
- A valid passport with at least 6 months validity left
- Proof of onward travel or a return flight ticket
When is the Best Time to Travel to Egypt and Jordan?
The best time to book and enjoy Egypt and Jordan tours from India really depends on you, and what criteria are of the most concern. Many people enjoy visiting during the Christmas and New Year period or during the Easter holidays, but this is also when tour packages cost the most.
As a general rule, the prices of Egypt and Jordan tours fall into one of two categories: High Season and Low Season. High Season typically lasts from September to May, when the weather is almost always cool enough to be considered pleasant by most travelers. During the low season, the weather can be very warm, but this is also when prices are at their lowest.
In short, if you want cool and pleasant weather during your stay, then it is best to visit during the high season. If on the other hand you want to snap up a bargain, then consider visiting during the low season.
NOTE: At Egypt Tours Plus, we believe in flexible travel, and to this end, our guides and tour managers will always do whatever they can to ensure that our clients are as comfortable as possible, even if this means changing tour times in order to avoid the warmest part of the day.
