My partner has a driving conviction & I am worried in case this might affect him being granted a visa - can anyone advise please?
Is he a British Citizen - UK passport holder?
If yes, just go to the Bank at arrivals, give the money 25 USD per person.with the passports - they will stick a large stamp in the passports - thats it - no hassle.
No issues at all. They wouldn't even ask, let alone know. Have a great trip. Just buy your visa at the bank kiosk on arrival as GraysonD describes. Have a good trip.
As your not applying online, Egypt has a visa on arrival, which you can purchase when you land.
It's not like the USA/Canada visa that youll need to show convictions, etc.
They will literally be more interested in receiving the $25 enter fee.
Enjoy your holiday ☀
Phew!! Thanks very much started panicking as already booked! Yes planning on visa at airport, ciggies & booze from plane, pen for landing card & working my way through TA for other tips!
What ever you do please do not even attempt to drive in Egypt.
Driving conviction or not a licence here has no meaning.
There isn't any.
Drive which ever side you want which is in the shade. Makes no difference.
Always drive at night with no lights that's mandatory.
Always try travelling with 2 goats in passenger seat.
Driving with a mobile in each hand whilst smoking and reading the paper is normal.
Seriously though do not even think about driving here not even a hire car.
It really is whacky races.
You forgot needing a 3rd hand to press the car horn continually!

Hahaha. Jared is right and I have even got an Egyptian driving licence! The test involved driving 50 metres, changing gear once, breaking and reversing 3 metres and apparently the "examiner" was being tough. There was nothing in the test about goats on the backseat, kids on the roof, horns, panels held on with sellotape or full beam lights on ONLY when another car is approaching. I would never drive there. Bonkers.
