Egypt's Ministry of Tourism has extended its electronic tourist visa to 28 more nationalities - taking the tally of total nationalities that are eligible for an e-visa to 74.

The announcement comes within the framework of the efforts exerted by Egypt to promote tourism via working on facilitating measures to get a tourist visa.

Nationals of UAE and other GCC countries can also apply for an e-visa.

From South Asia, Indian nationals are eligible for an e-visa.

Deputy Tourism Minister Ghada Shalabi said that upgrading this system comes a year after the resumption of a tourism campaign in July, 2020, a statement issued on Thursday said.

This upgrade is expected to encourage more tourists from different countries to visit Egypt, Shalabi added.
