Weather in Egypt: Egypt generally has a hot desert climate The climate is generally dry in most of the country except on the northern Mediterranean coast which receives more rainfall in winter.
Greatly moderate temperatures throughout the year. Because of this effect, average low temperatures vary from 9.5 °C (49.1 °F) during wintertime to 23 °C (73.4 °F) to summertime and average high temperatures vary from 17 °C (62.6 °F) during wintertime to 32 °C (89.6 °F) in summertime. Though temperatures are moderated along the coasts, the situation changes in the interior of the country which are away from the moderating northerly winds.
Best Time to Come: Egypt is a rather large country with two general seasons; a mild winter and a sunny summer. The majority of Egypt’s landscape is a desert, except for the White Mediterranean coast, the Nile Valley and the Delta.
Between November and March the daytimes are pleasantly mild, whereas evenings and nights are cool and enjoyable in all of Egypt.
In April and May temperatures are generally mild and this is an ideal time to visit any destination in Egypt.
From June to September the weather is very hot, dry in the desert areas and humid in the Nile Valley and on the White Mediterranean coast. Sunglasses, sunscreen, a hat and good hydration are essential, and trips to the desert areas aren’t a good idea in that period of the year.
Late September and October, as well as April and May are thus ideal for touring Egypt. And the November to February period offers the pleasant balmy weather that is perfect for cruising down the Nile.
The Red Sea Riviera has great weather all year round; it is thus the perfect sun & sea destination to escape to when the sky gets too cloudy back in your homeland.

For Visa :
All foreign travelers require an entry visa to visit the Egyptian territories. Most of Egypt’s tourists and visitors can obtain their visas at any of the country’s entry points (airports and ports). This type of visa is valid for a one-month period, starting from your arrival date.
To obtain this visa, it is required that you hold a valid passport.
To avoid the bother of finding out too late that you need to apply for a visa in your homeland prior to your journey to Egypt; we’ve provided you with the numbers and addresses of the Egyptian embassies and Egyptian Tourism offices abroad, when available. They will be more than pleased to answer all your queries regarding visas.

Clothing:
Egypt is a predominantly Muslim country. While you can wear anything you want, it is inappropriate and disrespectful to wear certain articles of clothing. For men: feel free to wear t-shirts and long pants anywhere. In tourist sites if bused around by tour bus and not making any stops in local shops, and in resorts it's ok to wear shorts. For women: wear 3/4 sleeve shirts, skirts below knees, and longer pants. The less skin you show, the more respect you will receive. It is ok to wear t-shirts or tank tops at tourist sights. Where other busloads of people are present. Have a long sleeve shirt to cover up once you leave the sight.
