This week, how to see the goldfinch painting in the Netherlands and a consultation on a Dubrovnik city guide are on the agenda …
Q. We are traveling to Egypt: what is the best way to obtain a visa? We prefer to have one before the trip.

Holiday Guru provides reader advice on how to obtain a visa for Egypt.
A. Before you travel, sign up via visa2egypt.gov.eg – The fee is $ 25 paid in sterling. However, if you go to the resorts of Sharm el Sheikh, Dahab, Nuweiba and Taba for up to 15 days, you will receive a free entry stamp upon arrival.
A tourist visa is available upon arrival at other destinations if you wish to avoid an online application – simply pay $ 25 in sterling or US currency. See Egypt's "entry requirements" on the Foreign Office website (gov.uk)
Q. Has your series of cities "for less than £ 100 a night" covered Dubrovnik in Croatia? Is there a better place online to see all city guides?
Lynn Clayton, via email
Aerial view of Dubrovnik, Croatia, which has become a popular travel destination
A. Yes, Dubrovnik has appeared in our weekly column – to find it, just search online for 'Dubrovnik for less than £ 100 Daily Mail'. You can use this method to check all other highlighted cities as well (about 40 in total).
Q. When traveling around Europe after Brexit, if I book a 14-night vacation and return home on the 15th, will that 15th day be included in my 90-day travel permit for 180 days?
Frank Thompson, via email
A. Yes, it would be. For a more complete explanation, see gov.uk/visit-europe-brexit
Q. My son will soon take me to The Hague, The Netherlands, to see The Goldfinch, a painting by Dutch artist Carel Fabritius, in which I am interested. I assume it will be there, not borrowed?
Pauline Brunton, via email
A. It will actually be on display at the Mauritshuis Art Museum. Also check out Johannes Vermeer's Pearl Earring Girl (mauritshuis.nl)
