Question: Do Filipinos need visa when visiting Egypt?
Filipinos need visa when visiting the Arab Republic of Egypt.
If one is traveling to Egypt under a group tour, Egyptian Tourist Visa is available for Filipinos on arrival. Visa Fee is 25USD + 20USD Entry Fee. No requirements to submit.
However, if one is traveling to Egypt NOT on a group tour, prior visa has to be secured prior to arrival.
VISA REQUIREMENTS FOR FILIPINOS APPLYING FOR EGYPTIAN TOURIST VISA
The following are the requirements when applying for an Egyptian Tourist Visa.
- Original Passport
- 2×2 ID picture with white background
- Round trip Ticket Reservation
- Hotel Reservation
- Tour Itinerary
- Bank Certificate
- Employment documents or Business Documents
- Payment of Visa Fee upon approval
Personally submit everything to the Egyptian Embassy in Manila located at JAKA Building, Makati.
I entered Egypt through the Taba Boarder because I came from Israel. I got visa on arrival.
Some Arab countries (like Lebanon and Syria) do not accept tourists who have Egypt’s Taba Boarder immigration stamp in their passport. The presence of Taba Boarder immigration stamp means one has been to Israel. To solve the issue, renew your passport if you intent to visit say Lebanon or Syria.
Eliat, Israel and Taba, Egypt is where one experiences crossing one continent to another by foot. Its literally walking from Asia (Israel) to Africa (Egypt).
