Egypt

Is Egypt considered a safe destination?
Egypt is very safe to travel to, but as with any country, you need to adhere to local laws and cultural rules. It’s also a good idea to check your local Government travel advice prior to travelling as these sources of information are usually updated daily. Please be assured that we at Palma Tours ensure our clients safety is at the forefront of everything we do.
How can I obtain my visa to visit Egypt?
Almost all foreign nationals will need a visa in order to enter Egypt. Citizens of only 9 countries can travel to Egypt visa-free. These are Bahrain, Hong Kong, Kuwait, Lebanon, Macao, Oman, Saudi Arabia, UAE, and Malaysia. To obtain a travel visa is very easy. Upon arrival at any of the following airports Cairo, Hurghada, Sharm El Sheikh, or Marsa Alam, you can obtain a travel visa from the visa office located in the arrival hall of all the above-mentioned airports. The visa usually costs around $25 USD however visas can also be purchased in any other foreign currency.
Do Egyptians speak languages other than Arabic?
The answer to this is yes. The official language of Egypt is Arabic and most educated Egyptians are fluent in English, German, French, Italian or all. The Egyptian General Tourist Guides Syndicate has more than 20,000 guides speaking different languages like French, English, Czech, Slovakian, Japanese, Sabian, Romanian and so on. So don’t worry it is very easy to communicate in Egypt.
