I'm an American planning on traveling from Rome, during my South loop, to Egypt to embark on the 5-day Egyptian tour. I was wondering if anyone has done something similar to this and how you went about getting your tourist visa for Egypt. Did you get one while planning your trip? Or did you purchase one when you arrived at the airport in Egypt.

I was also curious if there would be any difference in my visa if I purchased one now verses getting one at the airport; because I would traveling from Europe with an American passport in one scenario while the other would be issued to me while I am still in the USA.

Any information would be so helpful! Thank you!
