Countries Not Requiring Entry Visa for Egyptians (UPDATED On 30.8.2015)

Published

on

Egyptians like to travel, however those only holding an Egyptian passport tend to pick domestic destinations, as they hate to go through the visa process that requires ridiculous documents, consumes a hell of time and above all requires planning ahead of time, it’s never like “let’s go to Europe or anywhere in the world next week”, it’s “let’s plan for our coming trip at least 3 months in advance, and pick a destination with minimal visa requirements”.

Who said that Egyptians can’t tour some amazing parts of the world hassle free? Good news, there is still a good number of 43 destinations visa free, or where visa is acquired upon arrival to Egyptian passport holders.

Important Notice: Always call the relevant embassy to make sure that no changes were made to their visa policy, and to pay a visit to Mogama3 El-Ta7rir in case you are traveling to one of those 16 destinations, and fall into the 18 to 45 age group

Most of us think that only Europe or the US are the place to be, but what the world has to offer is way beyond our imagination, this list of places will make you look at the world pretty differently and reconsider your travel plans.

Post Long Holiday Syndrome: How to Avoid the stress

Published

on

I doubt that anyone can put into words how scary and frustrating it is to go back to Cairo and mundane life after a long weekend. It was only yesterday when you woke up by the sea having a very lazy morning, and the next day you are running around your room getting ready for work; and instead of taking long walks by the beach, you get stuck for countless hours in Cairo traffic.

Well, we can’t agree more that the struggle is real, that we had to find some ways to adjust. Here are our thoughts to make the experience less traumatic:

There is no place like home:

Although I don’t agree 100% with that phrase, your home can make you feel less traumatized about going back to your materialistic routine. Feeling home after a long weekend can make you feel safe, relaxed and not so distressed about coming back after all. Try to make your place as homey as possible, decorate it the way it makes you feel comfortable and add something you bought from your trips to it. Keep your place tidy and clean before you leave for your vacation, because coming back to a messy room will only make you feel worse.

Light Up Incense:

For some reason, there is something holy about incense, despite the fact that there are few studies out there debunking the benefits of incense. Nevertheless, incense produces fresh scents that can help ease your stress. Light up incense once you go home and then peacefully go to sleep.

Enjoy Cairo:

It is unquestionable that Cairo has a beautiful side, from historical sights to fancy dinning by the Nile. An early morning run can ease you back to reality and help release any stress or tension, you can as well hang out at night and dine by the Nile or go watch that movie you’ve been waiting for in the Cinema. Despite the noise and the over crowded streets, Cairo actually can be fun.

You can check our cinema and events calendar for some inspiration.

Reunite with friends:

It is granted that being around your close friends makes you feel better; it is like you all know deep down that you are in this together. Not only intimate friends gatherings can make you feel good about going back home but also getting in touch with the ones you don’t see often.

Plan Your Next Escape:

Planning your next trip can also be a motivation to go on with your mundane tasks. As much as we can please ourselves in the big capital, longing for solitude is no shame; I mean, who doesn’t like lying by the beach alone quietly for some time?

In the of the day, try to enjoy every situation anywhere as much as you can, whether you are working hard in your full time job with your laptop, or listening to your favorite track by the sea.

What You Need to Pack for Your Sham ElNasim Trip

Published

on

backpack trip sea

The long weekend is starting and we are over the moon preparing our backpacks for a short holiday retreat. We know how much you all deserve a break, so we don’t want you to waste your time packing absolutely unnecessary stuff that you won’t probably wear or use. We took on the mission to put together the most important items you will definitely need in the next couple of days.

-Essential Clothes:

You don’t need a whole closet for a couple of days off. Bring with a couple of: T-shirts, shorts, underwear, one pair of pants, extra pair of shoes, socks and of course, a jacket for the chill nights.

-Towel:

Whether you are staying in a 5 star hotel with fancy towels or a deserted camp in Sinai, you need your own towel with you. The towel will come in handy if you are in camp or somewhere by the pool or beach.

-Shades:

A Sham ElNasim break cannot go with a cool pair of trendy sunglasses. Note that one pair is perfectly enough.

-Sun Screen:

Our pale skin has been craving the spring sunrays for so long and we can’t wait to put on our finest swimsuit, lay under the sun, and get that skin tanned! Yes, get our skin tanned not burnt! A sun screen or tanning oil will protect you from the bad sunrays and give you that tan you have been longing for.

-Beats:

Chilling nights by the beach needs some music vibrating in the air. Don’t forget your portable beats because silence is no fun. Just make sure that your music is not too loud or you are bothering anyone with your taste.

BOUNCE:

Pass by a kiosk and grab some snacks for the road; because what is better than binge eating on chips during road trips?

Happy Sham ElNasim and Have FUN!!!
