I am an Indian passport holder. I have a 2-year Schengen visa and am in France right now. I need to visit Egypt this week. What visa formalities are required for an Indian passport holder?

1 Answer 1


Your Schengen Visa doesn't play a role for Egyptian Visa.

You will need to obtain a visa for Egypt according to the Ministry of the Foreign affairs of Egypt.

You should be able to do this at the Embassy in Paris or it may be possible if you're traveling as part of the tourist group that you won't have to.

  • is your last link correct? The statement on that page could be true for US passport holders only, not Indian passport holders.

  • Ah, found another reference for it here: Visa required, except for Nationals of India traveling as a part of an organized tourist group, provided: - The tourist group consists of at least 10 persons; and: - Holding a return ticket, booked accommodation and a signed guarantee letter from a travel agency.
