The Egypt e-Visa for Norwegians was introduced to simplify the process of obtaining a visa to enter the country. It saves travelers the hassle of going to an embassy or queueing at the border to apply for a visa.
The electronic visa is available as a single-entry visa (valid a singular stay of up to 30 days) or as a multiple-entry visa (valid for up to 90 days and allows reentries). Though the Egypt e-Visa application only takes a few minutes, travelers should apply at least seven days before entering Egypt to allow time for the application to be processed.

For short stays, there are a couple of different types of visas available to Norwegian travelers. The Egypt e-Visa is the most convenient option and there is also the option of a visa on arrival for Norwegians.

To obtain a visa on arrival for Norwegian citizens, Norwegian travelers can queue at the kiosks at airport terminals. It is necessary to have a passport which is valid for at least six months, complete the application form, and pay a $25 visa fee. The fee needs to be paid in cash and it is advised to have the exact amount to avoid complications.
