Egypt used to be a magnet for inbound international tourists, until the political upheavals at the start of this decade disrupted the flow to a large extent. Numbers slid down to a mere nine million from a once high of fourteen million. However, now things are recovering with a 123 percent rise in tourism revenues to US$ 7.6 billion in 2017. The country has now introduced an e-Visa for visitors from countries such as USA, UK, Australia, Canada and Japan. Egypt’s tourism policies must also reflect the new reality. As per, business intelligence gathered by the Egypt Tourist Authority, travelers from India and China are replacing those from Europe and Russia, which were the traditional source markets. This e-Visa will be launched by 2019 and will include fingerprint recognition at major international airports.
