Get Egypt Tourist Visit Visa from Paris

Egypt is a quintessential tourist destination and French vacationers are not immune to its charms. The expansive desserts, immense Nile river and the ancient pyramids are only some of the attractions that pull visitors from France. The North African country is only a small jump across Mediterranean sea for visitors from Paris, and offers them a chance to walk the busy streets of Cairo and explore the historic bazaars of the city. French travelers will also enjoy luxurious cruises down river Nile which give a great view of the landmarks, cities and farms that line the banks. In order to plan a trip to Egypt, French nationals should consult the consulate located in Paris. Even though there is a separate embassy in France, visa and tourist issues are dealt separately in the consulate and not the embassy.
