    Good to know about "the country where it all begins"

    Egypt is a popular destination for travelers seeking a mix of history and beach vacation and as of May 2023, Egypt has a 4.5 out of 5 rating on Tripadvisor, based on more than 2 million reviews. It is located in the Eastern European Time Zone, which is one hour ahead of Sweden.

    The best time to visit Egypt for a holiday maker is during the winter months (December to February) or the shoulder seasons of spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November). During these times, the weather is milder and more comfortable for exploring the country's major attractions, such as the Pyramids of Giza, the Valley of the Kings, and Luxor Temple. Other must-see attractions in Egypt include cruising down the Nile River, exploring the Red Sea coast, and visiting the vibrant city of Cairo. Whether you're interested in history, culture, or relaxation, Egypt has something for everyone. However, it's important to note that some parts of the country, such as the Sinai Peninsula, have ongoing security concerns, so it's best to check the latest travel advisories before booking your trip.

    Swedish citizens can obtain a visa on arrival at the airport or through the Egyptian embassy or consulate in Sweden before travel. The visa on arrival is valid for up to 30 days and costs 25 USD. It's always a good idea to check the latest visa requirements with the Egyptian embassy or consulate before traveling.
