Countries Not Requiring Entry Visa for Egyptians (UPDATED On 30.8.2015)

Published

on

Egyptians like to travel, however those only holding an Egyptian passport tend to pick domestic destinations, as they hate to go through the visa process that requires ridiculous documents, consumes a hell of time and above all requires planning ahead of time, it’s never like “let’s go to Europe or anywhere in the world next week”, it’s “let’s plan for our coming trip at least 3 months in advance, and pick a destination with minimal visa requirements”.

Who said that Egyptians can’t tour some amazing parts of the world hassle free? Good news, there is still a good number of 43 destinations visa free, or where visa is acquired upon arrival to Egyptian passport holders.

Important Notice: Always call the relevant embassy to make sure that no changes were made to their visa policy, and to pay a visit to Mogama3 El-Ta7rir in case you are traveling to one of those 16 destinations, and fall into the 18 to 45 age group

Most of us think that only Europe or the US are the place to be, but what the world has to offer is way beyond our imagination, this list of places will make you look at the world pretty differently and reconsider your travel plans.

The Step Pyramid is Back After 14 Years of Restoration

Published

on

Step Pyramid

Egypt has been renovating a lot of things for a while now. One of the most important aspect that is being renovated at the moment is Egypt’s infamous “Step Pyramid of Djoser”. It is promised that this monument is to be opened quite soon for the public. Yay us!

The Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities has just announced this morning that the renovations of the Step Pyramid are finally complete! The Secretary General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities recently visited Saqqara’s Archaeological site to survey as well as take a glimpse of all the latest work prior to the grand opening.

 

Upon restoring the site, the workers had focused on maintaining the Pyramid’s integrity by adding protective stones around the Pyramid in hopes of protecting it from several things such as rain damage and weather conditions too. They had also replaced the stones to prevent the architectural monument from collapsing by repairing the roof and even filling holes. You should know that for centuries Egypt has been neglecting taking care of the Step Pyramid, which is why we’re super excited and can’t wait for the grand opening!

Back in 2011, reports were made by UNESCO claiming that the Step Pyramid, a 4,600 year old Step Pyramid is in extreme danger of collapsing. Alarms were sounded which is why the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities decided to develop as well as preserve restoring cultural sites all over Egypt, the Step Pyramid being one of the most important.

Believe it or not, 90,000LE was used to undertake the restoration and repair. You might think of it as a lot of money, but due to the advanced scientific techniques and tools that are to help maintain the structure’s integrity, 90,000LE is considerably very cheap for renovation!

One of the most exciting things about the renovation is that the ministry had installed electronic panels in order to portray the detailed history of the Saqqara Archaeological site. This will definitely help maintain our country’s ancestral history! Another cool addition to the artifacts are full time security guards, ventilation, modern lighting, and also wheelchair ramps and paths for the needy to allow all kinds of visitors to be able to witness such a beautiful restoration of history.

If you didn’t know, the Step Pyramid has been closed ever since 2006 after an earthquake hit Egypt pretty hard in 1992 and threatened to collapse the Step Pyramid. To fix this problem momentarily, researchers had to use a massive balloon filled with water to help maintain the structure for the time being. They had later stopped restorations in 2011 due to political instability but then quickly began again in 2013.

The Step Pyramid is quite unique not only because it was built by Amenhotep during the 27th century, but also because these were the first pyramids to ever be constructed in the world. Due to that, the actual Pyramids began being created.

We’re quite happy and content with the way Egypt has been dealing with their history and cultural artifacts. We have one of the greatest most important history and culture amongst all, which is why it is great that after 14 years of restoration and hard work, we finally get to witness a better historical upbringing.

Are you excited to see the new changes that are made?

Travel Guide: How to Plan A Low Budget Trip

Travel Guide: How to Plan A Low Budget Trip

We’re talking here to real travelers! Those who are traveling to explore not to live luxuriously and therefore are looking for ways to help them stay within their allocated budget, they’re the solo travelers who are seeking to enjoy the destination not their stay.

So for those of you who relate, here are a few tips and tricks to help you travel on a low budget.

Travel out of season

Google the best time to visit your desired destination then travel just before or after the dates given, this technique is called the ‘shoulder season’ where you get to enjoy the country but not the weather.

But who cares when the hotel and airlines prices will be so much lower than the usual? Trust us, you’ll still enjoy the country just as much.

Pack properly

One thing I personally make sure to do is pack properly because trust me, shopping expenses take up from your budget and you will find yourself inside the supermarket buying loads of stuff you clearly don’t need. So bring everything you need and always take with you a warm hoodie and a waterproof jacket, because anywhere you go, unpredictable weather incidents may occur, so why risk shopping for a new jacket?

Book flights in advance

Prices of flight tickets get higher in time as you approach your travel date, so make sure to always book your flight ahead if you already have everything sorted out.

Public Transport is your new travel buddy

Don’t even consider Uber or cabs when you’re traveling abroad, especially if the country you’re traveling to has a subway that covers most areas. Always choose public transportation, buses, metro or trains to get you around. If you’re scared to get lost, you can always ask around or use Google Maps.

Don’t eat away your budget! 

I know that dining in expensive restaurants seems quite appealing but getting broke on your second day is way scarier, so choose cheap lunches that you can buy from a supermarket, or give street food a try. But of course try the country’s main local dish as this is part of your travel experience.

One thing I always do because I get hungry A LOT is pack a few things from home, including canned food, pastas and of course some munchies.

Choose your accommodation wisely

Trust us, you won’t be spending much time in your hotel room because instead you will be out there exploring the world. So basically all you need is a safe place to leave your stuff behind and somewhere that is clean too.

You can trade expensive hotel rooms for dorm rooms in hostels, also a great way to meet people if you’re traveling solo! If you’re traveling with a group, then rent a place on AirBnb, you will find great spaces at low prices when divided on all of you, a studio will even suffice! Couchsurfing is another website you can give a look.

General tips!

  • Go where you know people. This will not only save you the accommodation fees but will also help you get around easily as they will show you around.
  • Ask the locals on some of the best deals on food, accommodations, and other necessities can only be discovered through word-of-mouth on the ground.
  • Gather all the information you need on the country before traveling, you can ask on Facebook groups for advises and personal experiences.
  • Avoid gift shops and shopping in general.
