Getting an Egypt visa for Portuguese citizens is more accessible than ever. Since December 2017, a total of 46 nationalities have gained the right of applying online for an electronic visa, which means that you are no longer required to go to the Egyptian embassy and apply for a visa. Instead, you get to do it from home, whenever you want, and it only takes approximately 20 minutes. iVisa will help you with that.
The application process is pretty straightforward, and you only need to meet a few requirements. Here is a list of everything you need to provide for iVisa to get started:
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.
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 application form designed by iVisa could not be simpler. You must go through three steps. The first one will ask you to fill in your personal information and select a processing time. You have three options:
Standard processing time – when you choose this option, your 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.
You must also choose a visa type. The fees for the single-entry visa are mentioned above, while a multiple-entry visa costs you an extra $35.
The second step consists of a simple revision and payment. Last but not least, the third step will ask you to complete a personal questionnaire, as well as to upload additional documents. Once you are done, you hit the submit button and wait for the visa to arrive.
Obviously, getting an Egypt visa for Portuguese citizens has never been so simple. However, if you need any help with the process, iVisa provides excellent support. You can call 24/7, and someone will help you every step of the way.
