  • Any of our seaports, like Alexandria and Safaga, are open to cruise ship passengers. This stamp is proof that they went on their little trip. Since they are leaving Egypt on the same cruise ship, their stamp is good for the whole time they are there. If they come by cruise ship and leave by plane, they will need more than one visa.
  • People who take chartered planes to Sharm El Sheikh will stay there until they go home. They will not leave Sharm El Sheikh or South Sinai. If they leave Sharm El Sheikh to fly to Cairo, for example, they will need to get a visa at the airport when they arrive in Sharm El Sheikh.
