traveling to egypt for the frist timeI'm planing on traveling to egypt this year for the frist time & plan on staying there around 20 days with my fiance who's egyption but we both have many questions about this. I know I can get a visa once I'm there for 30 days but is it possabile to travel alone there & bable to stay there with him or will I have to travel with a group to enter egypt? If he has a place all ready for me to stay at I see it not a problem but am not shure for this & nether is he if I can just come alone or have to be traveling with a group or wait for him to try to invite me so can I please get any help with this . Also in an american citizen if any need too know.

3There is no problem in the airport, my husband is American and when he visited Egypt he bought the visa when he arrived at the airport.
but if you stay in a hotel you can't share the room with your fiance, you must be married and show your marriage certificate to the hotel administration to stay in the same room. If your fiance has a private apartment and only the two of you will be staying there, you might face some troubles from the neighbors. The best thing is to stay with your fiance's family, if his family live in Egypt.

5When you land in Egypt you will be asked to write the name of your hotel or of the friend at which home you're staying. Just write the name of the hotel where you're staying the first night. Tourists who arrive without having booked a hotel are asked to write the name of the hotel "when they think they will be staying".
To sum up: you have to write something on the "accomodation address" line, but they could not care less whether it's true or not.
