I’m planning a nice vacation to Egypt‘s Sharm El Sheikh but I want also to make some 1 day trips to Israel or Jordan, is there a visa problem if u exit Egypt to Israel and re-enter it ? Is that zone in a war like situation ? why could Egyptian authorities became sensitive about my humble one day trip to Israel, I’m a simple tourist, no military/spy or other ”undesirable"person.

Is there any problem if u leave Egypt for 1 day trip to Israel and the re-enter Egipt ?

    There shouldn’t be a problem with that, but you will get asked why you went to Israel, when you come back through the airport, or border. I know this from experience, & that was back a few years before things got so sensitive again.
    It wont be a big problem though, just stay calm & let them ask their questions & you’ll soon be on your way.
    Have a lovely time.

    Personally i don’t exactly know for sure if your going to have problems with that, i do know however that egyptians are reaaallly sensitive when it comes to israel, which is really silly considering that tel-aviv is a top vacation destination in the world, the only way to know for sure is to ask someone whose ever been there before.

    hoy hoy hoy,,,,,, who told you there is any problem,,,Mr humble tourist,,,,No problem of course doing that,,1000’s to Eilat daily there were 203000 Israeli visited Egypt last year,and 56000 ones did that this first quarter of the year,,,,,,,you can even ask a tour company to arrange it for you,,,

    @Tamara : that is not applied on Egypt, Jordan , Qatar, Kuwait,, Emirates (and most of the Gulf states even)-still in Lebanon-Syria as an example ,,, that was long time ago,,,not now any more..

    If you are not an Egyptian citizen I don’t see the danger.

    I’ve been told that you will have problems entering any Muslim country if you have it stamped in your passport that you have been to Israel. I have also heard that you can get the Israelis to stamp a separate piece of paper, rather than your passport.

    Good luck

    No, you will have no problems, Israel and Egypt have good "political" relations.

    Well it depends….from Egypt to Jordan is not a problem but if u enter "isreal" with alot of visas/stamps from ‘muslim’ countries Israel may give u some trouble…search your person and your bags etc. Best to fly into Tel-aviv than to cross from the Allenby Bridge. Generally less customs/immigration issues at the airport than land crossings. Also if u have an Israeli stamp in your passport you can never travel on that passport to Iran, Syria, Sudan or Saudi Arabia.

    @ Zoser: If u have Israel stamp on your passport, you cannot enter Kuwait.
