Any tourist who requires an extension in visa needs to register himself. A tourist who is living in Egypt after the expiry of his tourist visa and without tourist registration can be subjected to heavy punishment and severe fine. Tourist registration formalities can be fulfilled way in advance to have an enjoyable and trouble -free tour.
The formality for the extension of visa is done at the Mogamma Building at Tahrir Square in Cairo. After filling a registration form and payment of the required fees, a registration stamp is issued on the passport. In Alexandria, you can get the tourist registration done at the Passport Registration Office on Sharia Talaat Harb. Many of the hotels all across the country also make arrangements for tourist registrations.
