Did anybody here about these changes?

I went to renew my tourist visa at Mogamma in Cairo today to be told that the law has now changed and the maximum extension permitted on a Tourist Visa now is only 3 months. After that time you either have to come back with an application for residency based on work, studying, marriage, or a child studying here. If you can't do that you will have to leave Egypt at the end of the 3 monthst!!

These new rules seems to be really true.
Here the official information from website of Egyptian Ministery of foreign affairs:
http://www.mfa.gov.eg/MFA_Portal/en-GB/ ... gulations/

There is exactly written, that's now only a 3 month visa available anymore.

A friend of me was yesterday in El Tor to renew her 1 year visa. She got a new 1 year visa without any problems or any other extra effort. So the one year visa is still available as before.

sharmenssun: your friend had one year visa before or tourist for 3 months?
And actually could you advice how much money should I prepare for that trip and document fees?


Soon my 3 month will finished(one week from now) and I dint know if should I go to El Tur or just go for trip by boat to Jordan :) and come back...


I'm not sure about trip to Jordan, because I don't know if they have same rules as for plane...on the airport u can pay 135 le for longer staying and no problem, but is it the same when you are leaving Egypt by boat?

My own business here went down, so I'm searching for a work(some companies provide visas and working permissions), but I can not be sure if I will work for company(hotel) or not, till this time I must do something with visa to stay here longer.

Do you have any advice?
:roll:

Hi ...

The visa in El Tur for 1 year costs something about 100 LE (not sure about exact price anymore). The re-entry for half year is 65 LE.

Be careful with companies offering work permits if you are not working with them.
The work permit has to be done by the employer. Work permits done without any company in the back are often fake and can cause problems.

companies are anyhow very carefully with issuing work permitts, even you'll work for them. The work permitt is very expensive and therefore many companies trying to avoid issuing one. There are anyhow new rules as well for work permitts, as I heard from our HR, you'll get one only, if you continue with the same company and they renew it for you or with a 5 years Resident Visa. Diving Centers, Beauty Centers and this kind of employers are anyhow not issuing work permitts. Length of tourist visas are as well depending on your nationality. East Europeans are from shorter periods, West Europeans are issued without any problem for 1 year.

There is no published address anywhere on the official government sites but if you drive injto El TOur and ask for the Visa and Passport office they would be able to help - taxi would usually know of the office as well, if you stuck then just ask the policemen on the entry the El Tour City, the Passport Office is virtually 5 minutes away from the City Gates

Here is the link to the Internal Affairs MInistry with their contact numbers for the Passport Office
