Egypt to Raise Entry Visa fee to $60


Egyptian ministry of foreign affairs told the press that entry visas will cost as much as $60. New rate will take place at 1st march 2017. This decision is widely discussed among tourists and entire travel industry.

The majority of tourists suppose that new price for visa on arrival will fend the would-be tourist off country. It will rise the total price of entry for a family of three to $180. It is the price to consider for the majority of European guests. It is especially important at the beginning of forthcoming tourist season. The comeback of Egyptian tourism may never happen.

There are speculations, however, that the new regulation will be slashed in spite of protest of industry members.
