Albanian citizens are among the eligible foreigners who can apply for a visa for Egypt online. This new electronic visa allows Albanian citizens to explore Egypt for stays of up to 30 days without having to visit an Egyptian embassy in person or hire a travel agency.
The e-Visa for Albanian citizens can be obtained as a single-entry or multiple-entry visa. A single-entry visa means that eVisa holders can only enter Egypt once for a stay of up to 30 days within a three-month period. If they leave the Egyptian territory and wish to re-enter it again, they will need to obtain a new visa.
A multiple-entry E-visa for Egypt allows Albanians citizens to enter the country multiple times over a period of 180 days.
Albanian citizens need a visa if they want to enter Egyptian territory. Thanks to the new eVisa for Egypt, Albanian tourists can apply for an electronic visa online as late as 7 days before their intended date of departure.
If you wish to visit Egypt for work or study purposes, or you need to stay in the country for an extended period of time, there are several other visa types available. However, you’ll most likely need to visit an Egyptian embassy in person.
Depending on your nationality and the circumstances of your travel, you will need to meet specific visa requirements set by the Egyptian immigration authorities.
The requirements for Albanian nationals in order to be granted an eVisa for Egypt are:
In order to be granted an Egyptian eVisa for Albanians citizens, applicants must hold a passport issued by the Albanian government valid for at least 6 months after the planned date of arrival in Egypt.
The passport you use during the online application will also need to be used to travel to Egypt and pass border checks. At the Egyptian entry point, you will be asked to show a printed copy of the eVisa as well as the Albanian passport provided during the application.
It is important to remember that the e-Visa for Egypt is no guarantee of entry. The final decision will be made by the Egyptian border control officers who will check your visa and other travel documents.
Albanian citizens are still eligible for the Egyptian visa on arrival. However, that usually means waiting in line at the airport (or other entry points) and applying at the immigration desk there.
When applying for a visa on arrival, potential issues can arise if the travel documents are not in order or the traveler doesn’t have the exact cash amount to pay for the visa fee. Holding an eVisa for Egypt allows for a quicker and smoother experience at the border.
