What is Egypt Tourist Visa?

Egypt tourist visa is a stamp placed on a valid passport by an Egyptian visa official. This stamp stands as a permit giving to the holder of the passport to travel to Egypt for a period of 90 days for leisure or vacation, without business pursuits.

Individuals who intend to travel to Egypt with other motives should apply for any other types of Egypt visas as it fits the purpose of travel. They are: Egypt working visa (to work in Egypt for a specific period of time), Egypt student visa (to study in an Egyptian educational establishment for a period of time) and Egypt business visa (for pursuing business interests in Egypt).

Step 2:

Visit the Egypt Embassy in Nigeria to submit your visa application form and meet other relevant requirements.


  • Submission of a fully completed visa application form and required declaration.
  • Submission of photographs.
  • Submission of the original valid national passport and one photo copy.
  • Submission of original valid visa (for non-Nigerian nationals).
  • Submission of recent financial institution statement.
  • Submission of original confirmation letter from an insurance company on travel health insurance for Egypt and one photocopy of the letter.
  • Hotel Booking:  In the case where you have no one to invite you, you will need a valid hotel booking as proof of accommodation arrangement. Your hotel booking should be valid and should be verifiable if the embassy calls the hotel. Many hotels will cancel your booking once payment is not received within 24 hours after booking, this could lead to visa refusal. Also, we would not encourage spending lots of money to book hotel when you have not received your visa. We have a solution for the hotel booking which you should see in order not to fall victim.

    Please any advice?

      You should be aware that the immigration over there will expect you satisfy the condition of your visa. Without it, you need a lot of luck to go through.

    Please I recently got an admission to study in Lithuania and since they is no Lithuania embassy in Nigeria, I was asked to go to the Lithuania embassy in Egypt..
    I want to apply for Egypt tourist visa but I don’t what they meant by letter of introduction, and is it important considering what am going for..

    • Adeniyi Sheriff March 29, 2017 at 11:26 am - Reply

      Why dont you go through india. But if you insist on going through italy, as a student that is not working, you may nit need an introduction letter. But if you are working, tell your company to give you a letter, introducing you to the embassy as an employee and must be written on the company letter head paper.

    A brother wants to go to Egypt to learn Arabic at a village there. What sort of visa will he apply for? He was told by someone he would be given a tourist visa which will last for 3 months or less and when he gets to Egypt, it would be prolonged for him. What would you advise this brother? Thank you

    • Sheriff subair adeniyi November 20, 2017 at 4:35 pm - Reply

      His purpose of trip is language study which qualifies him for student visa. The school should help him with admission letter to facilitate that. Also, call the egyptian emnassy to confirm if he can use a long duration tourist visa (like 6 months)
