Egyptian authorities on Thursday announced an entry visa fee for nationals of Arab countries.

The Egyptian government gazette published a decision by Interior Minister Mahmoud Tawfiq on the visa fee for citizens of Arab countries visiting Egypt.

The decision exempted nations that had previously signed exemption agreements with Egypt but did not specify these countries.

In June, Egypt said it imposed an entry visa fee on Gulf states, namely Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Oman, and Bahrain, in addition to a previous decision imposing entry visa fees on Qatari citizens effective as of November 2017.
