Are you aware of the fact that there are a good number of countries and territories that you can travel to without Visa but with only your Egyptian passport? It is common practice that various countries across the globe put entry restrictions in place. This is to restrict access to non-citizens and establish border control; ensuring that a controlled number of people who are eligible by the standards set out by the country are allowed in. Such restrictions involve a process of applying for and obtaining a visa.
However, with the Egyptian passport, citizens have access to all the listed countries and territories outside of Egypt visa-free or visa on arrival. What this means for you is that with only your Egyptian international passport, you can travel to these countries without the need to make prior visa arrangements. This goes a long way in reducing the stress of planning a travel or visit as there are fewer formalities to deal with and above all, the usual time squandering visa application process is boycotted.
