General RequirementsOne of the first things you should be aware of is the validity of your passport. If you do not have one, you need to get that fixed, and if you do have a passport, look at the expiry date. You need to make sure that it will not expire for at least another six months from your arrival date in Egypt. State officials want to make sure that your passport does not expire before your visa, which in itself is a favor to you. Even so, your e-visa application will be denied if the passport requirement is not met. Since visa fees are not refundable, iVisa recommends that you cross this requirement off your list before submitting your application. The next requirement applies to all travelers except the citizens of a European Union country and the United States. Egypt’s visa policy states that all foreigners who enter the country (except the ones mentioned above) need to register themselves with the police within one week from their arrival in Egypt. However, hotels can help you with that. You just need to show your passport to the receptionist, and he or she will register your passport information for the police. If you are not staying at a hotel, make sure that you do not forget about this formality. You should also know that if you are a citizen of the US, European Union or Israel, you do not need a visa if you go to Sinai resorts. Israelis need to cross only through the Taba Border Crossing. You will receive a free entry permission stamp upon arrival. So, if you plan a vacation for 14 days or less in Sharm El Sheikh, Dahab, Nuweiba, and Taba resorts, a passport is all you need. Of course, you will not be allowed to leave these locations while there.
