The yacht requires a scanned copy of each guest’s passport to be uploaded through the GIS 10 days prior to the yacht departure so it can be sent to local authorities to secure permission for guests to board. Egyptian citizens must scan a copy of their ID and passport no less than 14 days prior to arrival for port clearance.    

Visitors must have a current passport, adequate funds to support themselves, and a return airline ticket. US citizens require a passport that must be valid for 6 months from date of entry. It is the travelers’ responsibility to ensure they have the proper visa to travel into each country on his or her itinerary as well as for re-entry and return to their country. Since regulations vary by country, contact your consulate or embassy of your country for the requirement.


Travel Advisory: We are unable to accept reservations from guests traveling on an Israeli passport due to Egyptian maritime regulations. There is a risk that when the Port Authority is clearing the yacht to depart Port Ghalib on the charter, travel may be delayed and/or denied by the authorities for these individuals.

Minimum Age For Diving: The minimum age to scuba dive in the Red Sea is 15 years of age.
