As of December 20017, the Government of Egypt has given the green light for the release of electronic visas. It means that all eligible nationalities can now apply for a visa online. 46 nationalities are eligible, and Hungarians are among them, which means that an Egypt Visa for Hungarian citizens is available. If you are from Hungary, you are no longer required to go to the embassy and get your visa. Instead, you access iVisa’s website and apply there. The process is simple, fast, and efficient.
Before filling in the application form, you should know a few things. There is a list of requirements you need to meet, but there is nothing complicated to obtain or do. Here is what is required of you:
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.
The processing time and visa type will establish the amount of money you will be charged. iVisa gives you three options when it comes to processing time:
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.
As for visa type, you can choose depending on your needs: single-entry or multiple-entry. The fees for the first one are mentioned above, while the second is $35 more expensive.
It is easy to see why electronic visas become more and more popular. It takes about 20 minutes to apply, there is no trip to the embassy, and your effort is minimal. An Egypt visa for Hungarian citizens makes no exception. It is cheap and easy to get. It does not get better than that.
