Egypt Immigration Services

​• Immigration and employment regulations in Egypt limit the options for employers of foreign nationals.
• ​There is no business-specific visa category; foreign nationals visiting Egypt for business should obtain a consular-issued visit visa or a regular work permit for longer travel where hands-on activities may be involved. In some exceptional cases business visitors can carry out their activities based on a visa-on-arrival or a pre-arranged visit visa if ​a special notification letter submitted by a host entity to the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) has been acknowledged by the MOM; such approvals are granted on a discretionary basis for short-term visits only.
• Work and Residence Permits are issued with a validity of twelve months but the approval is granted in two six-month increments; it may be renewed for up to three cumulative years (also in six-month increments).​​​​​​
Detailed Immigration Snapshots, Document Lists and Process Guides are available to clients on request.
