  • U.S. citizens traveling to Egypt must have a current passport that is valid for six months beyond the conclusion of their trip. You can find information on how to apply for a passport here, and how to renew a passport here. U.S. citizens visiting Egypt will also need an entry visa.  We will send you application forms to complete to obtain your visa prior to departure. Visa costs and entry requirements can change at any time. Please visit travel.state.gov to learn more.

  • The currency in Egypt is the Egyptian Pound. We suggest bringing a combination of credit and debit cards on your trip. The most convenient way to obtain cash is to use your ATM or debit card to withdraw Egyptian pounds at local banks in Egypt.  It is important that you inform your financial institutions of your travel plans before you leave home so they don’t flag your purchases as fraudulent charges.

  • We suggest bringing a variety of comfortable, lightweight clothing that can be layered. Sturdy walking shoes are important for sightseeing excursions. Insect repellent and sunscreen may come in handy, as well as a light jacket and shawl or scarf.  Keep in mind that your shoulders and legs should be covered at religious sites. For more helpful information please refer to our Packing Tips & Packing List.

  • We highly recommend our optional Travel Protection Plan, which allows you to cancel for any reason up to 48 hours before departure.
