However, for the best information concerning visas, we recommend you to contact the Egyptian embassy or consulate in your country. Check the list of Egyptian embassies in various countries. A Visa would normally cost between $15 and $90 USD, depending on the applicant's nationality (about $20 for US citizen).

Those in possession of a residence permit in Egypt are not required to obtain an entry visa if they leave the country and return to it within the validity of their residence permit or within six months, whichever period is less.
