Diplomatic Passport Visas

 US citizen with diplomatic passport deported from Cairo airport for no visa

Egyptian authorities on Saturday deported a US citizen with a diplomatic passport for not having a visa.
The decision to deport the US national is based on the law that any diplomat entering the country is obliged to obtain a visa in advance.
Based on the principle of reciprocity, foreign nationals whose countries require a visa for diplomatic and official passports will be obliged to apply the same requirement in Egypt and obtain a visa in advance.
Egypt, however, allows tourists from the US, Europe and particular countries to buy a visa at the airport upon their arrival.
