• Egypt announced that beginning May 15, 2015, all foreign visitors to Egypt would need to procure either a business or a tourist visa from an Egyptian embassy or consulate prior to arriving in Egypt. Previously, business and tourist travelers could obtain the required visa upon arrival in Egypt.
  • The May 15, 2015, date has now been postponed until Egypt implements an electronic visa system, which would replace visas on arrival. However, no date for the implementation of the electronic system has been set.
