Yes, Russian citizens need a visa to travel to Egypt. This is because Egypt requires all foreign visitors to have a valid visa before entering the country. While this rule has some exceptions, Russian citizens are not among them.
The good news is that obtaining an Egyptian visa is a relatively easy and straightforward process. You can apply for a visa at your local Egyptian embassy or consulate, or you can also apply for an e-visa online at the Egypt Immigration Services website. The e-visa system has been in place since 2017 and allows travelers to apply for a visa online and receive it via email.
To apply for an e-visa, you will need to fill out an online application form and provide some personal information, including your name, date of birth, passport details, and travel itinerary. You will also be required to pay a fee for the visa.
Once your application has been processed and approved, you will receive your e-visa via email. Make sure to print out a copy of the visa and bring it with you when you travel to Egypt. You will be required to present it at the airport when you arrive.
