Visa before travel or on arrival?

Hi

We are arriving in Egypt in October and had been planning to buy our visa's on entry, however I have been reading on other sites that we need to buy them before we travel from the UK.

Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

Many Thanks

According to the Embassy's website, we have to buy them here (Paris) before our departure. I think that the same would apply to all visa requiring visitors, but your best bet is to check with them directly.

both ways are valid for short visits (tourist visits), you can get them at the airport upon arrival or from the Embassy/consulate.
