Getting to Egypt from Ireland

Many years ago, it was mainly cruise ships that would ferry tourists to Egypt, but today one rarely sees this anymore. These days, most people simply don’t have the time, and of course, cruises are notoriously expensive, which makes flying to Egypt the best choice by far.

One of the nice things about Egypt tours from Ireland is the relatively short distance between these two countries, which means you don’t have to burden yourself with any long haul flight. In fact, if you get a direct flight from Ireland to Egypt, you should only be airborne for around 5 hours and 50 minutes.

If you have booked your tour through Egypt Tours Plus, you will be met at the airport when you arrive, and then you will immediately be transferred to your hotel in one of our clean and modern air-conditioned vehicles so that you can begin enjoying your vacation as soon as possible.

Visa Requirements for Egypt Tours from Ireland

If you are going to be traveling on an Irish passport during Egypt tours from Ireland, you will be pleased to know that obtaining a visa for Egypt is now easier than ever. Up until 2017, Irish citizens, along with the citizens of all EU member states, had no problem obtaining a Visa-on-Arrival at any of Egypt’s international airports. While this was very easy to do, it did involve having to stand in long queues, particularly during the high season.

In 2017, the Egyptian authorities went ahead and launched an online e-visa system which was then made available to all EU countries, along with the United States; Canada and Austria.

Irish citizens can of course still obtain a Visa-on-Arrival, but applying for it online is just so much easier and more convenient. You simply complete a very basic and straightforward application form; upload scanned copies of the required documentation, such as the main information page of your passport; pay the required fee with a debit card or credit card, or even with PayPal, and then click submit. Your e-visa will then be sent to you via email. Your application should be submitted at least 7 days prior to your departure to Egypt.

There are two types of tourist e-visas available: a Single Entry Visa and a Multi-Entry Visa. The single entry costs $25 and allows you to remain in the country for up to 60 days, while the multiple entry visas costs $60 and allow you to remain in the country for up to 90 days. By contrast, a Visa-on-Arrival only allows you to remain in Egypt for 30 days. When you arrive at the airport in Egypt, you will be required to have the following documentation:

  • A valid passport with at least 6 months validity left.
  • A printout of your e-visa.
  • A copy of your tour itinerary.
  • A company cover letter or an invitation letter if visiting for business or to visit family.
  • Hotel bookings and/or details of places you intend visiting as a tourist.

Visiting the Sinai Peninsula without a Visa

If you book Egypt tours from Ireland which only include spending time in Sinai resorts such as at Sharm el Sheikh, and providing your tour does not exceed 15 days, you can obtain a free Permission to Enter stamp which will allow you to enter for a period of up to 15 days. In order to qualify for this stamp, you can only enter Egypt at Sharm el Sheikh, Saint Catherine, or Taba Airports.

If your travel plans change and you want to travel elsewhere in the country, or if you decide you want to extend your stay, you will need to visit Sharm el Sheikh Airport to get a Visa-on-Arrival.

Staying Safe in Egypt

While Egypt is in fact a very safe country to visit, it is not without crime, as is the case in all countries. Always remember, a little bit of common sense can go a long way in preventing unpleasant mishaps. For example, only carry the necessities with you when you are out and about, and never be tempted into deals which seem too god to be true. You should also never agree to buy anything illegal should someone approach you in the street.

Other safety tips would include things like only drinking bottled water, and only eating at restaurants and cafes which are relatively busy. If a lot of locals are eating at a particular venue, then that is a good sign and a good indication of quality and freshness, and also cleanliness. If you are ever in doubt, remember that our tour guides are always happy to offer advice and make recommendations.

With really affordable prices, and so much variety to choose from, our Egypt tours from Ireland are a fantastic choice for anyone who wants to experience a vacation of a lifetime.
