The new visa card.

Post by Dusak »

Well finally I got my new visa card, told to pick it up Sunday, not there, return next day, not there, told to wait until Wednesday. A typical experience with my visas, takes longer than everyone else.Its credit card size with your photo on and the expiry date, six months from the date of issue. To be honest, I really don't see the point of them. You need to carry them with you at all times. When landing at Cairo you get your new sticky one month visa in your passport. When its time for your six month extension, you still need to go with your passport, all paperwork as before including a photo. You then get a new visa card, costing 1,695Le. I was told that these new cards say that you have permission to live in Luxor, no mention of any other area, plus it gives you the right to leave and re enter Egypt at any time . I thought we could already do that lol.

Does that mean it functions as a multiple re entry visa as well?

Can you leave and return at any time within the 6 months without paying $25 and without your 6 month visa being cancelled?

My understanding is that, if you want to leave and re-enter within the 6 months, you need to apply for a separate re entry visa or you will have to start all over again.......but there’s been so much chopping and changing I’ve lost track.
