All other visitors require a visa which can be obtained from the Egyptian embassy OR on arrival at the airport. In the latter case, you should go to one of the bank kiosks at arrival and purchase your visa before proceeding through passport controls.

Money

You are not advised to change sterling or euros to Egyptian pounds until you arrive in Egypt where Forex bureaus provide a much better rate than the banks.

Both Yallajabaleya and Zarzora provide comprehensive packages and money is only required for minor and personal expenses.
