Me and my fiance are travelling to Greece for honeymoon. I got our tickets booked on EgyptAir from Mumbai to Athens with layover in Cairo. We don't intend to go out of the Cairo airport as the layover period is only 4 hours long on both onward and return journey. Do we need to apply for Egypt visa ?


As stated in Timatic, the database used by airlines:

Transit without Visa: Holders of onward tickets for a max. transit time of 48 hours.

So no, you do not need a visa

  • The OP didn't state his nationality. Your Timatic search says Not applicable to nationals of Iran who must hold a transit visa, and has some limitations for other countries.

    @ugoren Pretty sure they're Indian judging by their Point of departure and Profile pic
