Hi I am a Canadian and is planning on visiting Cairo. Just wanted to see if anyone knows if I can obtain the visa at the entry point at the Cairo airport?

Visitors from the US, Canada, EU and Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries may be able to purchase a visa stamp upon arrival at many large airports if the visit is for tourist purposes. One-month visitor's visas can be extended. Military permits issued by either the Ministry of Interior or Border Police are needed to travel in the Eastern Desert south of Shams Allam (50km south of Marsa Allam), on or around Lake Nasser, off-road in the Western Desert and on the road between the oases of Bahariyya and Siwa. These can be obtained through a safari company or travel agency at least a fortnight in advance of the trip.

Yes. It's easy. When you arrive at the Cairo airport and as you're standing in line for customs, there is a row of banks along one wall. Just go up to one of the banks, hand them your money and they'll hand you a stamp.:)
