When joining one of our Egypt tours from Canada and traveling to Egypt from Canada, in addition to a valid passport (valid for at least six months from the date you plan to return from Egypt), you must also have an Egyptian tourist visa (Canada visa to Egypt).
The tourist visa requirement applies to all Canadians traveling to Egypt. The cost of the visa is $ 25 (single visa) or $ 60 (multiple visa) per person, and the visa is valid for a maximum of 30 days.
Suppose you are traveling to Egypt from Canada with a Canadian passport. In that case you can purchase a tourist visa at the Egyptian airport upon arrival, at Egyptian diplomatic missions in Canada or online via the website. If you are arranging the visa online you just need to register and fill out the form. It should include the date and purpose of travel, your Canadian passport number, information on visits to Egypt so far, and the planned place of stay, among other things.
After completing the application and making the payment, a link to download the e-visa will be sent to the e-mail address provided by you. You should print it out and take it with you on vacation. Importantly, this electronic form should be submitted at least 7 days before the Egypt tour from Canada to make sure that everything is in place for your arrival to Egypt from Canada.
If you buy a visa at the airport, at the bank's counter upon arrival in Egypt, you will receive a sticker in your passport confirming the purchase. In turn, at the embassy, the visa will be pasted into your passport. To obtain it, you must present the facility employee with a completed visa application and a color scan of the ID page of the passport.
Canadians visiting the Sinai Peninsula, including the popular resort of Sharm El Sheikh, are exempt from the obligation to purchase a visa. However, this is only on the condition that during their stay they will not travel outside the Sinai Peninsula. If they would like to visit Luxor or Cairo, for example, they also have to pay a visa fee. At passport control, Canadian tourists will receive a stamp that will entitle them to a 14-day stay in the Sinai Peninsula.
For more information before your Egypt tour from Canada, see the travel advice and advisories for Egypt prepared by the Canadian government. This will make sure that you're fully prepared to travel to Egypt from Canada.
Are there any Egypt to Canada travel restrictions in place due to Covid-19? The short answer to this question is no. Egypt does not require any vaccinations from Canadian travelers to Egypt, and has eased restrictions on Covid-19. You can travel to Egypt from Canada without showing a negative PCR test or a complete Covid-19 vaccine series at the airport in Cairo.
However, it should be remembered that coronavirus (Covid-19) is infectious. It can spread from person to person by direct contact and through droplets in the air.
It is recommended that all travelers who plan Egypt tours from Canada or travel to Egypt from Canada complete a Covid-19 vaccine series along with any additional recommended doses in Canada before traveling.
Evidence shows that vaccines effectively prevent severe illness and hospitalization from Covid-19. While the vaccination provides better protection against serious illness, you may still be at risk of infection from the virus that causes Covid-19. Anyone who has not completed a vaccine series is at increased risk of being infected with the virus that causes Covid-19 and severe illness when you travel to Egypt from Canada and during Egypt tours from Canada.
Remember that the coronavirus spreads easier in crowded places, with close contact and in confined spaces with poor ventilation. Risk increases where these factors overlap. For your safety, you should therefore keep a social distance, wear face masks at airports, on coaches, and in museums or other crowded closed spaces.
Public medical facilities in Egypt are not of as high a standard as in Canada and private facilities are very expensive. Make sure you get travel insurance that includes coverage for medical situations and hospital stays to put your mind at ease during the Egypt tours from Canada.
When planning Egypt tours from Canada or your travel to Egypt from Canada, you will wonder whether to take Canadian dollars to Egypt or if it's better to take another currency with you.
At the airport in Cairo, you will need US dollars (cash) to purchase an Egyptian tourist visa for $ 25.
In Egypt, Canadian dollars can be used in exchange offices and banks. However, it is worth remembering that at the exchange office at the airport in Cairo, the Canadian dollar exchange rate will be very unfavorable. It will be similar in the hotel exchange office. In Egypt, Canadian dollar coins are very hard to sell, with many being unacceptable.
The current exchange rate of the Canadian dollar against the Egyptian pound (Egyptian pound to Cad) can be checked HERE.
You can also withdraw cash from an ATM in Egyptian currency - Egyptian pounds. ATMs can be found in most 5-star hotels and large towns. In small towns and villages on your Egypt tours from Canada you may not find ATMs, and may struggle to pay by card. Just in case, it is always worth having a small amount of cash in Egyptian currency with you at all times during your Egypt tours from Canada.
It is better to tip Egyptians in local currency or US dollars during your Egypt trip from Canada. Canadian dollars can come as a big surprise to Egyptians, who are used to receiving tips in Egyptian pounds, US dollars, euros and British pounds. Read our guide on tipping in Egypt where we talk about how much you should tip for different services on your Egypt tours from Canada.

Your passport will allow you to travel to Egypt from Canada. This needs to be valid for a minimum of 6 months from the date of your planned return from Egypt. It should also be remembered that Canadian citizens who travel to Egypt from Canada need to get a visa (Canada visa Egypt). The visa can be applied for at the Egyptian diplomatic mission in Canada, or on arrival at the airport in Egypt. You can also arrange a visa online. However, you need to make sure that you use the correct website for this.

In addition to standard summer clothes in light colors made of cotton, linen, silk and viscose, such as: airy dresses, trousers, blouses or t-shirts, it is also worth having comfortable, warm clothing to wear during our Egypt tours from Canada. Why would you need warm clothing, you ask? If you are visiting Egypt in the cooler months you will need clothing that protects you from the wind and lower temperatures; especially in the early morning or evening. A sweatshirt, sweater, or windbreaker jacket will be perfect.
A summer hat or cap and sunglasses is also useful when visiting Egypt from Canada. Women can take a scarf to wear over their shoulders. This will also come in handy when visiting mosques on your Egypt tours from Canada. Also, remember to pack comfortable footwear that’s not new. There will be lots of walking around monuments and temples. We recommend sports sandals or sports shoes.
Capture beautiful moments during your Egypt tours from Canada that you will later remember with your family, by using a camera or a smartphone. Also, do not forget to bring chargers for these devices and a power bank for when you're out and about.
Remember, if you are calling Canada from Egypt to contact family or friends, be aware of the time difference between Canada and Egypt, and of course check the costs with your phone provider, as these differ.
