How long can German citizens stay in Egypt with an e-Visa?

The validity period of the Egypt e-Visa differs according to its particular type:

  • single-entry: remains valid for three months from the issuance date; its holder can enter Egypt only once traveling either for tourism or handling business affairs.

  • multiple-entry: remains valid for six months from the issuance date; its holder is allowed to enter and leave Egypt multiple times at any moment within the validity period.

Whether you're a holder of single-entry or multiple-entry authorization, your allowed stay in Egypt cannot exceed 30 days each time. Both of these two entry permits function as a business or tourist visa.

Egypt e-Visa requirements for German citizens


All German passport holders will need to attach the following documents to their application form:

  • a scan of their ID card (citizens of Germany aren't required to submit a passport, a valid identity card is enough);
  • applicant's face photo (smartphone or webcam photos are acceptable);
  • only for business trips: a company invitation that a traveler is going to cooperate with;
  • only for family visits: an invitation letter written by a family member who a traveler will visit in Egypt.


  • If you travel with your children to Egipt, remember that they will also need to have their own individual e-Visas. Parents or legal guardians should submit separate online visa application forms for each underage traveler.
  • If you want to extend your stay in Egypt, your electronic visa cannot be prolonged. You are obliged to leave the country before its expiration and submit another application form after returning if you want to visit Egypt again.
  • e-Visas do not serve as working permits which means you cannot be formally employed in Egypt. You are allowed to make a business trip in cooperation with an Egyptian company. Still, you cannot take up employment there since it requires a special visa issued by an Embassy.
