Egypt shelves advance visa demand

Egypt has shelved a plan to demand independent travellers apply for visas in advance. The requirement, which would not have affected visitors on package tours, had been scheduled to take effect from mid-May. It has been postponed while proposals for a new electronic visa system are considered. Travellers from the EU and a number of other countries including the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Norway are currently able to obtain visas on arrival in Egypt.
