Getting There

Egypt's main gateway is Cairo International Airport (CAI). There are also international hubs in main tourist destinations like Sharm el-Sheikh, Alexandria and Aswan. Most travelers will need a visa to enter Egypt, which can be applied for in advance from your nearest Egyptian embassy. Visitors from the U.S., Canada, Australia, Britain and the EU are eligible for a visa upon arrival at Egyptian airports and the port of Alexandria. Make sure to check up-to-date visa regulations before booking your ticket.

Egypt's currency is the Egyptian Pound. Check for up-to-date exchange rates.
