The alternative to Carries good advice is to buy the appropriate visa, in advance, from the Egyptian Consulate in the UK.

So members can be more helpful could you state if that's Egyptian days or English days? (taking into account that 1 English hour is 7 Egyptian hours) :lol:

If visiting regularly its cheaper and more convenient to get the yearly visa and the re entry visa they both cost about the same as one airport visa. You can then enter the country at any port without queuing for the visa each time. The re entry visa is for six months so you will need 2 (just to be clear) :!:

I'm assuming you can only get one re-entry visa (for as many visits as you like) for 6 months at a time. Also if you get your one year visa and a 6 month re-entry visa but you don't return within the 6 months the one year visa is no longer valid. Is that correct?

Yes you need to return before it expires its a long time since I did it Brian so maybe someone has more up to date advice.
