Passport / Visa Requirements
Travelers to Egypt can purchase a visa easily in the airport in most cases. You must have a valid passport with one available page for stamping. For trips to the West Bank from Egypt, a security screening is required. For travelers who've had difficulty with visas in the past or who are entering the country through a remote or contested area, purchasing a visa in advance is a good idea. Contact an Egyptian Consulate for more information. American citizens can refer to the U.S State Department website for guidance as well.
