Passports and Visas
UK nationals must buy a visa on arrival, or from the Egyptian Embassy in London. It costs £15 for single entry or £18 for a multiple entry. The visa is valid for 30 days. If you are restricting your visit to the Sinai, you will be issued a complimentary visa on arrival.
Note: All visitors are required to register with the police within a week of arrival, although the hotel usually does this.
