Travel Alerts

The FCO issue regularly updated travel alerts to try and keep travelers safe. We monitor all alerts for Egypt and update this page as soon as the advice changes.

  • The FCO advise against all travel to the Governorate of North Sinai due to the recent increase in criminal activity and recent fatal terrorist attacks on police and security forces.
  • The FCO advise against all but essential travel to the Governorates of Beni Suef, Minya, Asyut and Sohag and the Governorate of South Sinai, with the exception of the area within the Sharm el Sheikh perimeter barrier, which includes the airport and the areas of Sharm el Maya, Hadaba, Naama Bay, Sharks Bay and Nabq

Egyptian Pound Currency Guide

Egypt is still experiencing a period of change and this has affected the value of the Egyptian Pound. Because of this it is advisable to take a small quantity of US Dollars with you when visiting the country as some establishments (especially at tourist attractions and for tours) will only accept payment in Dollars. Would you like to compare US Dollars?

…save you money in the long run…

There is also a shortage of small change and small denomination notes so when ordering currency it is worth specifying small value notes for most of your currency. You may be charged a small surcharge for requesting a specific breakdown but it will save you money in the long run as if the Egyptian shop or restaurant cannot change your note, they may simply not give you change! Try and get as much of your travel money in £1 EGP, £5 EGP, £10 EGP and £20 EGP as you can, and avoid £100 EGP or larger notes. The average order value we see (based upon orders placed between 1st August and 31t October 2013) is for just £330 in cash.

If you are taking a credit or debit card to Egypt, consider a prepaid currency card instead as they offer lower fees and are accepted everywhere.

When entering and leaving Egypt the maximum local currency you can take with you is 5000 Egyptian Pounds. Other currencies have no limits; however, if you are carrying with you more than 10,000 USD upon entry you must declare this to customs.

Other customs restrictions include declaring whether you have electrical items and video equipment with you which again must be declared upon entry to the country.

Visa’s for Entry to Eqypt

All British Passport holders usually require a visa to enter Egypt. However, if you are travelling to the tourist Red Sea resorts (Sharm El Sheik, Dahab, Nuweiba and Taba) and only intend on staying for up to 14 days maximum you will not be required to pay for a visa.

If you travel out of these areas for particular excursions such as going to Cairo you will need to buy a visa and this can be obtained upon arrival at the airport and they accept payments in GBP, USD or EURO’s.

A Visa usually costs around 15 GBP and more information on visa’s can be found on the Egyptian Consulate Website External link opens in a new window.

Safety Tips for Egypt

Cash machines are widely available in popular tourist locations such as the Red Sea. Always be careful in taking out large amounts of money especially at night time and remote areas.

There have been a number of incidents on adventure excursions in Eqypt where people have been seriously hurt and even killed. Make sure you always book your excursions through your tour operator and check your travel insurance for coverage as some of the local independent operators in Egypt may not fully cover you for any incidents and emergency rescues.

If you need any further information about safety in Egypt CompareHolidayMoney.com partners with the FCO to promote the ‘Know Before You Go External link opens in a new window‘ travel information campaign for all of the African countries. Alternatively, to find out more about Egypt please visit the official tourism website External link opens in a new window.
