Combined Tour with Egypt — Visa, Taxes and Border
What is the procedure for entrance/departures to and from Egypt during a Holy Land Tour?
Passport holders from European Union member states, the United Kingdom, North America, Western Europe, Australia/New Zealand, Brazil, Argentina, Hong Kong, Japan, Macau, Malaysia or Singapore receive tourist visa upon arrival in Egypt. The fee is $25 USD payable upon arrival at Cairo Airport or at the land border crossing. All other nations must apply for a visa in advance via an Egyptian consulate.
We use the Taba Border Crossing to enter and depart from the Holy Land.
From Egypt to the Holy Land:
Our Hla Tours contact will accompany you to the border, where you will cross the border to Israeli side, and our Travel Jerusalem staff will meet you there.
For groups entering the Holy Land from Egypt via Taba: No exit taxes
For groups entering Egypt via Taba from the Holy Land:
♦ LE 46.00/ Egyptian Pounds = $4 USD (Inbound Egypt)
♦ NIS 101 / Israeli Shekel = $30 USD (Outbound Israel)
