Head to the airport without applying for a visa!
Posted on 09 Jul 09:59

We all love traveling, don’t we? But as Egyptians, we tend to pick domestic destinations in order to avoid the hassle of visa processing. As we all know, most embassies require a ridiculous amount of paperwork, consuming much more time than the planned holidays. But, we’ve got good news for you: JanSport Egypt is bringing you a list of destinations globally, where you can just take your backpack, head to the airport and fly! These countries will finally make it possible for us, Egyptians, to say ‘I’m thinking of going to X tomorrow!’.

While regulations might change, it’s always better to hold proof of sufficient funds to cover you stay in order not to be refused at the airport, it’s also better to have your return ticket on-hand and any documents required for the following destination if not coming back to Egypt.  We strongly recommend traveling with 6 months validity on your passport at all times. Make sure your passport has blank Visa pages.

You might be impressed that some of these places are simply exquisite, forget about the States and Europe, and retarget your travel map. JanSport Egypt will show you some of these places, you will love it.

Please not that you should always call the relevant embassy to make sure that no changes were made to their visa policy. (Right now, in most countries, nationals of any country who have visited Guinea, Liberia or Sierra Leone within the last 28 days will be refused entry due to health authorities’ considerations).
