Are Egypt Tours from Germany Safe?
Unfortunately Egypt has received some bad press regarding the safety of tourists in recent years, but while some of this is warranted, much of it is not. The fact of the matter is that you can visit Egypt without having to be concerned about your personal safety, particularly if you book your Egypt tours from Germany through a reputable and experienced Egypt tour operator.
At Egypt Tours Plus we take the personal safety and well-being of our clients extremely seriously, and you can be sure that at no one time would we ever consider taking any one of our clients to see an attraction or a place which we feel could potentially put their safety at risk. We have a large team of dedicated and very committed tour manages and tour guides that constantly monitor conditions on the ground so that we are 100% familiar with current circumstances in the country.
One only needs to read through some our customer reviews in order to realize just how safe this fascinating country is for tourists. Of course, as is the case whenever you travel to a strange country, there are certain safety precautions which you can take in order to minimize the possibility of encountering any unpleasant occurrences. For example, if you frequent areas which are tourist hotspots, there is always some possibility of becoming a victim of pickpockets and other petty criminals.
There are also dubious traders, vendors and touts who will be more than happy to scam unsuspecting tourists, but when you travel with Egypt Tours Plus, you are very rarely left on your own, which essentially means that one of our tour representatives will almost always be by your side, and they will do everything possible to ensure that your safety and well-being is guaranteed.
The only time you will be alone will be in the evenings after you have been dropped off back at your hotel following your tours and, and on days when they are on the tours or excursions scheduled.
Illegal and/or Controlled Substances
It is worth noting that some types of medication are not permitted in Egypt, or at the very least, they might be controlled substances. Drugs that might be available over the counter in Germany may be illegal in Egypt. We therefore recommend that you do not bring any over the counter medication to Egypt with you, but instead, source any medications you feel unnecessary at a pharmacy in Egypt.
If you take prescription medication on a daily basis and you need to bring that medication into Egypt with you, then we recommend that you carry a copy of your prescription, along with a letter from your doctor explaining exactly what sort of health condition you suffering from, the type of medication that is being used to treat your condition, and your dosage requirements.
If at any time during your stay you are approached by someone in the street and they offer you any type of drug other elicit material, we highly advise against accepting anything. Egypt tours from Germany should be a fun and unforgettable experience, and therefore we want to do all that we can in order to ensure that you do not fall foul of the law.
Customs and Etiquette
There is no denying the fact that Egypt is quite a conservative country, but the Egyptian people are incredibly understanding and very tolerant of the differing views which many tourists have.
However, we do recommend that’s visitors dress modestly, and particularly female travelers. This is especially true if you’re visiting religious places such as mosques and churches. For the most part however, the average Egyptian person he’s not overly concerned about how visitors choose to dress.
Just remember though that a little respect can go a long way in making you feel a lot more welcome.
What Are The Visa Requirements for Egypt Tours from Germany?
The ease with which an Egyptian visa can be obtained is one of the things which make Egypt tours from Germany so attractive to many travelers in Germany these days. As is the case with all European Union member states, people traveling with a German passport will have no difficulty obtaining an Egyptian visa. As has always been the case, a visa for Egypt can be obtained at any Egyptian embassy or any Egyptian consulate in Germany. German citizens also qualify for a visa-on-arrival at any International airport in Egypt. A visa on arrival will typically allow you to enter the country for a period of 30 days and will cost $25.
However, in 2017, the Egyptian authorities launched an online e-Visa system which allows German citizens who are traveling on a German passport to apply for an e-Visa online. There are essentially two types of tourist e-visas: a single entry tourist visa and a multiple entry tourist visa. A single entry e-visa costs $25, while a multiple entry visa costs $60 and both are valid for 90 days. Both allow you to enter the country for a period of up to 60 days.
Online applications for an e-Visa should be submitted at least 7 days prior to traveling to Egypt. Although in many cases German citizens may only need to show their passports and a print out of there e-Visa, immigration officials may ask to see other documentation. In order to avoid any disruptions or disappointments, we recommend that you have the following documentation ready when you arrive in Egypt:
- Your passport which will need to have a validity of at least 6 months left.
