    Hi Amanda thank you for the helpful post!

    We are planning to enter through the Taba border and will be staying for a week between Dahab and Sharm El Sheikh. You say that most people doing this don’t need a visa… do you know if this is true for Canadian passport holders? Which people doing this WOULD need a visa?

    Thanks again!

    new updated info. 22 dec 2018
    we arrived from eilat to taba and we were able to get a full on visa all the way to cairo. we saw a sign at the booth where they stamp your passport about cairo but it was kind of vague because of poor translation so we asked. they have a man/operator/dont know who comes by every half hour or so and for a fee of $20 he will write a guarantee for accommodations so you can get the visa. so for $20 ( his fee) plus$25 for the visa you can get it there. easy smeasy.
    oh yea, still needed us dollars for the visa. there is a money changer right there but we had some with us. he was able to go there and get USD change for my $100 bill.

    noooooooooo! you’re (probably unknowingly) advertising a scam… is a third-party, which pretends like it’s an official website – they basically charge you $60 to copy paste your info into a public website… here’s the official one:
