An Egypt visa for Swiss citizens is available in electronic format since December 2017. That means you are no longer required to visit Egypt’s embassy to get your visa. Instead, you can apply using a computer, tablet, or phone and an internet connection. The process could not be simpler, and if you use iVisa, you can have your visa in as little as three days. Not to mention that it does not cost very much either.
What are the requirements?
While iVisa will do most of the hard work for you, you are still required to provide a few things. There is nothing out of the ordinary, and the chances of you already having everything you need are pretty high. Here is a list of what the requirements:
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.
A valid e-mail address – iVisa will send you the document via e-mail, which means that there is no room for error when you fill in the application. If you fail to type in the correct address, you will not have access to your visa, which is most unfortunate because you have to go through the application process again. Double-check the spelling before you submit your application, and you should be fine.
Egypt Visa for Swiss citizens – cost and processing time
The cost of your visa is determined by the processing time you choose when you deal with the application form and the visa type. As for the first, you have three options:
Standard processing time – when you select 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.
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 for a single-entry visa are listed above, and a multiple-entry visa is just $35 more expensive. Both types will allow a maximum stay of 30 days.
As you can see, an Egypt visa for Swiss citizens is more than affordable. The application process is simple, and in case you need help with any of it, iVisa puts at your disposal an excellent support service. Someone is ready to take your call 24/7.
