Buying a visa on arrival was canceled in February 2010.

From 2019, visas are issued at the Socotra Immigration Office. You can apply for a visa only through our company. We work directly with the island’s immigration office. You should only send us a passport scan.

After approval of your visa, we will send you a scanned copy of a PDF visa issued by the Socotra immigration authority. Have a printed scan with you.

Upon arrival at the island at the airport Socotra you will be stamped on the entrance and will be given back from the original visa, which you must save until your departure back to Cairo.
