Reply To: Arriving in Egypt with an Israeli Stamp in My Passport

Back to Forum


Hello there

I travel a great deal in the Middle East and have extensive Israeli family relations so I think I should be able to answer your question.

In short, you won’t face any problems whatsoever. Israel and Egypt are at peace and Israeli tourists visit Egypt with great ease.

You will not face trouble having Israeli stamps in your passport when you travel to the following countries: United Arab Emirates (so including Dubai, Abu Dhabi etc.), Qatar (Israel and Qatar even have diplomatic relations), Jordan and Egypt.

Countries including Libya, Iran, Syria, Lebanon and Saudi Arabia will not allow you to enter with stamps.

I hope this helps.
