Egyptian Visa for Filipinos | Holy Land Pilgrimage Tour for Filipinos

Question: Do Filipinos need visa when visiting Egypt?

Answer: Yes

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.

  1. Original Passport
  2. 2×2 ID picture with white background
  3. Round trip Ticket Reservation
  4. Hotel Reservation
  5. Tour Itinerary
  6. Bank Certificate
  7. Employment documents or Business Documents
  8. ITR
  9. 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.

REMARKS

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).

  1. Hi there

    Came across your blog when I was researching for holy land

    I was wondering though how was the experience crossing borders from Israel to Egypt? Is it safe? Some people say that don’t cross to Egypt anymore as the travel is extremely long and generally unsafe. Was it with your case? Or it’s simply just paranoia among family? Was the travel smooth and easy?

    I really wanna visit Egypt as well to see the pyramids and not going there just because of false claims feels to be a shame.
