Business visa to Egypt
Are you planning to travel to Egypt for business purposes in the near future? If so, you will need an Egypt business visa rather than any other type of visa issued by the Egyptian embassy. Fortunately, the procedure for obtaining a business visa in Egypt is one of the easiest. Applicants who meet the requirements are almost always granted visas.
An Egypt business visa is an official document that is issued by the Egyptian government, through its offices abroad, to foreigners traveling to the country to conduct business activities. There are no strict criteria for obtaining this visa other than the business purpose. A citizen who receives a business visa can use it to attend business conferences and meetings, negotiate or sign contracts, attend fairs and business events, and for other business purposes.

Is there a possibility to get a business visa on arrival?
For some citizens of certain countries that do not have a visa-free regime, this possibility exists. However, the number of such cases is limited. Most business travelers heading to Egypt need to obtain a business visa in advance from the Egyptian Embassy. It is advisable to check if your country is on the list of countries for which visa-on-arrival is available, just to be sure.
What is the processing time for a business visa to Egypt?
Business visa processing time at Egyptian embassies does not have a fixed duration. The standard processing time is 14-21 days, but your application may take longer. Therefore, it is recommended to apply several months before your planned trip. Visa issuance may be delayed if the embassy receives a large number of applications or requests additional information or documents. If additional documents are required, we will send you a notification by e-mail or through the phone number provided. Once all required documents have been submitted, your business visa to Egypt will be processed and issued to you.
