Djibouti Visa for Egyptian Citizens

Publish Date -

Egypt has recently signed a deal with Djibouti to make it easier for Egyptian citizens to gain access to the Union of Comoros. This article will look at the different visa options for Egyptian citizens who want to travel to the Comoros islands.

The Djibouti visa for Egyptian citizens

Before signing the deal with the Comorian Union, Djibouti was requiring a visa for Egyptian citizens to get to the islands. However, this rule is now covered by the deal. All that the new agreement requires is that the official travel agency or tourist office of Egypt is present on the islands. Djibouti will then issue the tourist visa for Egypt.

This was revealed by the Arab newspaper Al Bayan and has been confirmed by sources in Djibouti. The official paper which needs to be issued is called the Djibouti certificate of tourism and passage.

The Djibouti visa costs EGP 7.5 for men and EGP 5 for women. The cost of the tourist visa can be paid by a bank transfer, cheque, or credit card. A tourist visa will last for three days and can be extended for up to 60 days.

What is the process? 

The process of obtaining a visa to visit the Comoros islands takes 2 to 3 days (3 to 7 days for a visa for visa-exempt holders) and costs an exorbitant amount of money.

For example, the online application for a two-year multiple-entry visa costs CDN$100 or CAD$1585, with an extra CDN$400 for the processing fee.

This is a lot of money for a one-day vacation for an Egyptian tourist in Djibouti.
