As the final days of summer come to an end, you may want to escape Cairo one last time. Planning a trip outside of Egypt can be a headache, though, with all of the extra planning, booking flights, and finding accommodation. One part we definitely don’t look forward to is trying to get a visa. It has the potential to totally screw up your travel plans if it doesn’t work out. 

Some of us just don’t have the time planning skills to think that far ahead. However, if you’re an Egyptian looking for a last-minute travel destination, don’t give up hope yet. You can visit some gorgeous countries and either get a visa on arrival or don’t need one at all. Here are the places you can visit without a visa. 


It’s no secret that the Lebanese know how to have a good time. You can travel to this small country and live it up by partying, sightseeing, and shopping. Plus, there’s no better place to get the most delicious Lebanese foods like tabbouleh and kefta. According to the Lebanese Embassy, Egyptians can obtain a visa at Beirut Airport, valid for one month and extendable for up to three months. 


For up to 90 days, you can stay in Malaysia without a visa at all. Aside from the modern architecture in its cities, Malaysia also has some beautiful beaches and lush jungles you can hike through. The country is also known for its diversity with a mixture of Asian cultures, and you can visit the local Chinatowns to partake in delicious food and marvel at the historical landmarks like centuries-old temples. 


If you want to be the envy of all your friends, just tell them you’re catching a flight to the Maldives for your next getaway. It’s the ultimate vacation destination for stunning white beaches, deep blue water, and dreamy resorts on the shores. Tourist visas are granted to all nationalities upon arrival in the Maldives, so guests do not need to worry about pre-approval. 

Hong Kong 

Egyptian citizens don’t need a visa to enter Hong Kong and can stay for up to three months. 

Known as a shopper’s paradise, Hong Kong also has towering skyscrapers, exciting nightlife, and mouth-watering local cuisine. You can spend your time exploring nature, window shopping in luxury malls, or dining at the world’s cheapest Michelin star restaurant.  


If you’re adventurous, Nepal could be your next destination. The country is a hot spot for mountain climbers and is home to eight of the 14 tallest mountains in the world. The breathtaking and iconic Mount Everest is just one of Nepal’s tourist attractions. You can also enjoy gorgeous national parks, view historical sculptures and monuments, or go on exciting excursions like bungee jumping.
