The government of Egypt on 12 June 2017, for the first time, introduced liberalisations concerning the visa acquisition process applicable to individuals with a Gulf residency in India, Pakistan, Indonesia, Philippines, Sri Lanka and Maghreb region (i.e. a region comprised by Mauritania, Morocco, Tunisia, Algeria, and Libya). Specifically, individuals that have a minimum of 6 months long residency in the denoted list of countries are not anymore required to apply for pre-approved visas issued by Egyptian consulates abroad, prior to entering the Egyptian jurisdiction. Now, they can for the first time instead acquire visas directly at the ports and airports connected to Egypt.
