I am a Canadian citizen, visiting in Malaysia right now, want to go to Egypt. I read the rules for visas changed in March 2015, but also read that change was reversed or something. I'm wondering if anyone would know if I can get a visa when I arrive there or not.

  • I'm curious where did you read the rules had changed ? – blackbird Nov 30 '15 at 14:08
  • @blackbird57: No idea where the OP saw it, but it's mentioned on Visa policy of Egypt (with sources). – Greg Hewgill Nov 30 '15 at 19:49

It seems you can still get a visa on arrival in Egypt, quoting the Egyptian embassy in London:

In addition to UK and EU nationals, citizens of the following countries can obtain visa upon arrival at any of the Egyptian ports of entry: Australia, Canada, Croatia, Georgia, Japan, New Zealand, Norway, Macedonia, Republic of Korea, Russian Federation, Serbia, Ukraine and USA.

The Timatic-based web tool from Emirates also says the same thing

Holders of normal passports issued to nationals of Canada can obtain a visa on arrival for a max. stay of 30 days. Fee: single entry: USD 25.-; multiple entry USD 35.-.
