Also, is it worth paying for an Arabic translation in my passport ??
Anyone know how long you get on these visas too ???
Thanks so much in advance..
Well I am traveling north from CapeTown and currently in Nairobi, so I don't know for sure about Egypt, but I have read it is no problem for UK citizens. Traveling south to north, you are correct regarding the countries and visas at borders. However, one has to obtain an Ethiopian visa from Harare, as Nairobi is no longer issuing. I am getting my Sudanese visa from Nairobi, and my Egyptian one from Addis, once confirmed it is possible. Sometimes it's better to get your visa from the neighbouring country, as you don't have to pay in US funds, local currency, and not have to wait in line at the border, changing money etc .
