As of December 2017, Egypt released an electronic visa program for 46 countries, including the states of the European Union. Since Cyprus is a part of the Union since 2004, an Egypt visa for Cypriot citizens is accessible. So, if you are from Cyprus, you can go to Egypt on a tourist e-visa. That means you do not have to visit Egypt’s diplomatic mission to get your visa. Instead, you can apply for an Egypt evisa from the comfort of your own home. iVisa can help you with that. The website has fast and efficient services. Not to mention that you are going to spend way less money than if you had to go to the embassy.
What do you need?
iVisa provides a simple application process, but you still have to come up with a few things to get started. Here is a list of everything you need:
A valid passport – if you do not have a passport, you can get one easily. If you have one, make sure that it is valid and will remain as such at least for another six months from your date of arrival in Egypt. Otherwise, your visa application will be denied.
A scan of the information page of your passport – you will be required to upload it in step three of the application form.
Complete a personal questionnaire – step three of the application form will also require you to answer a set of personal questions. It is nothing out of the ordinary. They just want to know the reasons for your travels and such. It should take about 5 minutes of your time.
Means of payment – since you are required to make the payment before you submit your application (step two of the application,) you need to have a credit or debit card ready. If you have a Paypal account, you should know that iVisa accepts that as well.
Egypt visa for Cypriot citizens – processing time and fees
The cost of an Egypt evisa depends on two things: processing time and visa type. As for the processing time, you can choose one of the three available options:
Standard processing time – when you select this option, you Egypt e-visa will arrive via e-mail within 5 business days. This is the cheapest processing time you have at hand. It costs only $50. $25 is the price of the visa itself, and the other half goes to iVisa as a service fee.
Rush processing time – this option will shorten the application processing time by one day. Your application will be processed within four business days, and you will be charged $80.
Super Rush processing time – if you have an emergency and need to be on a plane to Egypt as fast as possible, this is the option for you. Your application will be processed within 3 business days. As you may have guessed, the price goes higher as well. You will be charged $115.
The fees above apply to the single-entry visa. The multiple-entry version costs $35 more for each processing time.
As you can see, getting an Egypt visa for Cypriot citizens is easy as pie. The application form is easy to understand, and if you find yourself in need of assistance, iVisa has an excellent support service that is at your disposal 24/7.
