Useful Information

Visas

British passport holders travelling to Egypt normally need a visa.

Visa on Arrival (recommended)

You can get a visa on arrival by payment in Sterling, US Dollars or Euros; the visa fee is US$25 at approved bank kiosks within airport arrival halls, before reaching immigration counters. Visas granted on arrival are valid for a maximum of 30 days. There’s no need to buy a visa from an agent. In many cases agents will charge more than US$25 for a visa. If you’re harassed by an agent, report the incident to the tourist police in the airport terminal.

You may also get a visa from an Egyptian Consulate outside of Egypt before you travel.

British nationals travelling to Sharm el Sheikh, Dahab, Nuweiba and Taba resorts for up to 15 days receive a free entry permission stamp upon arrival. If you intend to travel out of these areas or stay longer than 15 days, you must get a visa.

If you have travelled to one of the South Sinai Red Sea resorts, entered without a visa and your plans have changed, you can normally purchase a visa at Sharm el Sheikh Airport to allow you to travel elsewhere.

Applications for visa extensions should be made at Egyptian Passport and Immigration Offices. You may have difficulties leaving Egypt with an out of date visa. You will not normally be allowed to leave without paying a fine if your visa is out of date by more than 14 days.

For further information and enquiries, contact the Egyptian Consulate in London.

Your specific passport and visa requirements, and other immigration requirements are your sole responsibility and you should confirm these with the relevant embassies and/or consulates of the countries in which you are planning to travel.

Visa Online

You can get a visa online at Visa2Egypt. Tourist visas granted using the e-visa system are valid for a maximum of 3 months.

The contact details of your host are as follows:

Host name - Corsini Travel

Host phone number - 00 202 33777073

Host fax number - 00 202 33777073

Host email - temostar@hotmail.com 

Host address - 20B Hadayek El Ehram Street, Giza, Cairo 

Passport validity

Your passport should be valid for a minimum period of 6 months from the date of entry into Egypt.

Transfer time

The transfer time for the main tour between Luxor Airport and the ship is approximately 30 minutes, depending on the traffic.

Currency

Egyptian Pound

Some shops accept credit cards or Sterling for larger purchases. There is a surcharge in most places for using a credit card of 3% to 5%, throughout Egypt. In the bazaars, and smaller shops, dollars or Egyptian pounds cash will only be taken.

For ease we recommend that you pay by cash for any optional excursions. Credit cards are NOT accepted.

US dollars, Sterling and Egyptian pounds can be used at the Duty Free shop. We also recommend you bring with you a good amount of cash Sterling as cash point machines are not easy to find especially during the Nile Cruise. Cash money can be easily exchanged to Egyptian pounds in Egypt and you get a better exchange for the sterling in Egypt. You can pay cash (any currency) or by card on board.

We recommend that when travelling to Egypt you call your bank or credit card company to inform them of your trip so they do not block your cards. 

Gratuities

We suggest a Group Collection to cover guides, transfer drivers, and hotel staff of minimum £50.00 per person. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, or taxi fares, your Tour Leader can advise of an appropriate % to add on.

Included programme

A sightseeing programme is included in your touring package.

Optional Excursions

All information about the optional tours will be given during welcome meeting. Please note that for optional excursions you can pay cash only.

Dress code

The dress code is casual. Comfortable shoes for walking and sightseeing are recommended.

 Please note

  • A reasonable level of fitness/mobility is required as we include plenty of sightseeing/travelling, some with early starts.
  • The order of the itinerary and events and ship and hotel may be subject to change
