Wikivoyage:Tourist office

Welcome to the tourist office

The Wikivoyage tourist office is a place where you can ask travel-related questions about any place in the world. Wikivoyage volunteers will do their best to find the relevant information (or just reply off the top of their expert heads) and reply to you.

Before you ask your question here, be sure to search our travel guide for the destination or topic you're considering. Many questions are already answered within our guides! In addition, some of our destinations have docents who have volunteered to answer questions about specific places. If neither of those avenues bear fruit, then please ask away!

This page is for travel-related questions only. Information on how to contribute to Wikivoyage is at Help:Contents, while questions about Wikivoyage itself may be posed at the Pub. Queries regarding general information on non-travel topics may be made at Wikipedia's Reference desk; some topics tangentially related to travel include:

  • the Humanities desk, which deals with geopolitics, culture, and human geography
  • the Science desk, which deals with natural processes, physical geography, and engineering (vehicles, transportation design, etc.)

Please note that we can not guarantee a response and can not be held liable for incorrect or outdated information.

Answered questions will be moved to the Archives after two weeks of inactivity.

Want a faster answer?

How can I get my question answered?

  • Explain clearly what you want to know.
  • Provide a short heading that gives the general topic of the question.
  • Tell us what part of the world your question applies to.
  • Don't post personal contact information – it will be removed. We'll answer here within a few days.

Visa for Rwandan.Edit

Need Rwandan visa for Egypt? Asked by: 10:56, 22 October 2018 (UTC)

Hi! Yes, you need a visa for Egypt. According to Egypt#Visa (look at the map), Rwandans can obtain a visa when they arrive in Egypt, unlike citizens of some other countries who need to apply in advance (the list of countries does not include Rwanda). You will need the equivalent of 25 U.S. dollars to pay for the visa when you reach the Egyptian customs, but you can also pay this in euros, British pounds or Egyptian pounds. Have a good trip. --ThunderingTyphoons! (talk) 11:55, 22 October 2018 (UTC)

Hi,I am a UK national and will transit via SGN on 17 Dec 2018 - arrival flight is Aeroflot SU292 from Moscow, arr 09.30 - I then need to collect my baggage pass immigration & check in with Vietjet airlines for a flight 4 hours later at 13.35 to Taipei, my final destination.

Hi! Per Vietnam#Entry_requirements, UK citizens can even visit Vietnam for 15 days without a visa, so you shouldn't need one for transiting. ϒpsilon (talk) 17:55, 29 October 2018 (UTC)
