Egypt Visa: How To Get?

Egypt Visa For Indian

Egypt is a very ancient country. Ancient Egypt is situated on the banks of the Nile River. It is surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea in the north, the Gaza Strip and Israel in the northeast, the Red Sea in the east, Libya in the west, and Sudan in the south. Thus, Egypt is an intercontinental country, connecting Africa and Asia-Arabia. It has been a very good friend with India since old times and Indian citizens often visit Egypt for business and tourism purposes. To travel to Egypt for tourism purposes you will need to obtain approval for a tourist visa from the Egyptian Embassy in New Delhi or the Consular Office in Mumbai. Indian citizens cannot apply for a visa to Egypt online as India is not included in the list of countries whose citizens are eligible for e-visa approval. Tourist visas for Egypt can be obtained from the Egyptian Embassy in New Delhi and the Consular Office in Mumbai. Unlike many other countries, Egypt has not outsourced its Egyptian tourist visa work to a private agency such as VFS or IFS. So far there is no provision of e-visa or visa on arrival of Indians (unless traveling in a large group). You do not have to appear in person to submit an application for a visa. A relative or an agent with a valid certification letter can also submit the application. You can get your visa in 2 to 3 working days.
