When Is the Best Time To Travel to Egypt?
Many travelers and particularly those traveling with school aged kids, like to visit Egypt during the Christmas and New Year holidays, and/or during the Easter Holidays. While there is no denying the fact that Egypt tends to take on a special sort of charm during these periods, it is also when prices are at a little bit higher because of the increase in demand.
The best time to visit will also depend of what criteria are the most important to you. The High Season which typically lasts from September to April sees the biggest influx of tourists because this is when the weather is at its most pleasant, regardless of what part of the country you are visiting.
On the other hand, if you want to secure the very best deals and also avoid the large masses of tourists that are common during the High Season, then you might want to consider visiting during the Low Season which lasts from the beginning of June to the beginning of September.
What Are the Egyptian Visa Requirements?
One of the best things about Egypt tours from NYC is the fact that if you are traveling on an American passport, getting a visa for Egypt is so easy and so straight forward. Like most people, Americans do require a visa in order to enter Egypt, but getting one honestly couldn’t be any easier than it is. In the past, you could apply for a visa at any Egyptian embassy or consular office in the United States, or you could simply obtain a visa on arrival at any internationals airport in Egypt.
However, the Egyptian authorities launched an online e-visa system during 2017 which makes getting a visa even easier, and of course it means you can avoid having to queue for a visa-on-arrival at the airport in Egypt.
To obtain an e-visa, you simply sign up on the official Egyptian e-visa portal website; you fill in the application form and you attach any required documentation such as a scanned copy of your passport’s main information page; you choose between a single-entry and a multi-entry visa; you submit payment, and then click send. Your e-visa should then be ready for you in about two to three days, but it is advisable to submit your application at least 7 days prior to your departure date.
When you arrive at the airport in Egypt, you will then need to show the following documentation:
- Your passport with a minimum of 6 months remaining validity.
- A printout of your Egypt e-visa.
- A copy of your travel itinerary.
- Hotel bookings and some details relating to the places you intend visiting.
- A company cover letter or an invitation letter if you are visiting for business or visiting friends or family.
Whichever way you look at it, Egypt tours from NYC are a fantastic choice for anyone in New York who is longing for a holiday of a lifetime.
