    General Information

    Climate

    • Egypt has year-round sun and almost no rain, except in Alexandria, which has more of a Mediterranean climate than the rest of the country. Daytime temperatures range from pleasantly warm in the winter to very hot in the summer.
    • Cities such as Cairo and Alexandria in the north are generally a few degrees cooler than places like Aswan and Abu Simbel in the south. Nights in the desert can be cold.

    Language & Currency

    • Arabic is the official language of Egypt. Many Egyptians speak English, and some speak German and French with varying degrees of fluency.
    • The local currency is the Egyptian pound, which divides into 100 piasters. Euros, Pound sterling and US dollars are often accepted, in tourist areas; local currency is best for tipping, small purchases and dining in local restaurants. Larger shops, hotels & restaurants widely accept credit cards. Access to cash machines is available in most major towns, and exchanging currency can be done in banks, foreign exchange bureaus and larger hotels.

    Visa & Access

    • Most foreign nationals will require a visa for entry to Egypt. Please check with your local Egyptian Embassy or our travel team for further information. Many nationalities can obtain tourist visas on arrival, at most ports of entry. The Egyptian government has introduced an online 'e-visa' application system for obtaining tourist visas in advance of travel.
    • There are ten international airports in Egypt with Cairo International (CAI) being the biggest. Other important airports include Alexandria (ALY), Aswan (ASW), Hurghada (HRG), Luxor (LXR), Marsa Alam (RMF) and Sharm El Sheikh (SSH).

    Health

    • At least 6-8 weeks before departure, please visit your local health care provider or travel clinic for any vaccination requirements and to discuss any other potential health risks. All travellers should ensure they have a valid travel insurance policy in place.
