Need for the Document

With the exception of a Head of State or Government who qualifies for an Diplomatic visa regardless of the purpose of his or her visit to the Foreign country, the type of visa required by a diplomat or other government official depends upon his or her reason for entering Egypt.

To qualify for the diplomatic visa, the individual concerned must be traveling to the Egypt on behalf of his or her national government to engage solely in official activities for that government. The fact that there may be government interest or control in a given organization is not, in itself, the defining factor in determining whether the applicant qualifies for an Diplomatic visa; the particular duties or services to be performed must also be of an inherently governmental character or nature. Local government officials representing their state, province, borough, or other local political entity do not qualify for a diplomatic visa.
