  • Thanks a lot for sharing this with all people you really realize what you’re speaking about!
    Bookmarked. Kindly also seek advice from my web site =).
    We can have a hyperlink change agreement among us

  • Hi, Mark! Thanks for sharing this. I wonder what tips the embassy may have given you? Please email me if the information is sensitive. Thank you. More travels!

      • Hi Mark! I would just like to ask if 15 days is the earliest possible time they can release the visa? Are there chances of having it in less than 15 days? Thank you. Your blog post has been a huge help.

        • Hi Jam, I also asked about it. If I’m not mistaken, they send them all by batch to the Egypt Embassy in Japan and 15 days is minimum but there’s maybe a possibility that your application has been delivered back to Manila earlier than 15 days that they won’t tell you when unless, maybe, if you go there and ask them. I think they don’t have consular service in the Philippines reason why they have to do it.

          • Hi again! Thanks for your response. In my case, they didn’t get my passport, they just asked to submit the papers and said they will call me once the visa’s issued. Anyways, have you tried this yourself?

          • You still need to bring your passport for cross-checking. They will xerox and give your passport back to you since the application might take longer than 15 days or 1 month. But don’t forget to bring your passport once they call you to claim your visa. The embassy is helpful on what applicants exactly need to do.

      • Hi again! Thanks for replying, Mark. A few more questions. Did you travel alone? If yes, did you indicate anywhere in your application form or itinerary that you were traveling solo? I heard that visa refusal is rather common for solo travelers. Also, about the tour itinerary, did you try your best to make it as detailed as possible? Including names of hotels, telephone numbers, etc. Looking forward to your response. Cheers!

  • Hi i ll be applying a tourist visa to them but my concern is i dont work but hamdullilah i can support my trip and i have enough funds to suppott my document.I ll be going to sharm el sheihk for one week. Will they accept if i only have bank ststement hotel bookings and flight itenirary? Thanks

    • Hi Stella, I’m not sure about submitting an application with missing document. A majority of all visa application requirements must be complete and accurate. I would suggest calling the embassy about your case. They answer phone calls and help you right away.

  • Can i ask? How about if one of my in egpyt send for me visa and tecket what is the requirement i need to get pls answer anyone know?
