Trip Planning

Apply For Visa

It is really critical that COY17 Attendees must take the necessary steps to apply for their entry visa to Egypt as soon as possible at the nearest Egyptian consulate to ensure their application is processed in time for their journey to Egypt.

Visa applications are usually processed in up to 30 days. Visas are free for those who have an official acknowledgment from the UNFCCC and apply via the Egypt E-Visa Portal.

There is no link between vaccines and visas – there is no requirement to be vaccinated against COVID-19 to apply for an entry Visa to Egypt.
