Do you plan to travel to Egypt multiple times within a 180-day period? If so, then please select the option for multiple entry. The multiple entry visa has a validity term of 180 days, during which an unlimited number of tourist visits to Egypt are allowed. These may include holiday visits as well a tourist stay to visit friends and family. At most, each separate stay may last up to 30 days. Costs for this visa are lower than the costs for two or more individual single entry visa applications for more than one trip by the same traveller.

Like the single entry visa, it can be applied for using the same comprehensible online form. The costs of a standard application with multiple-entry option are at £89.90 per traveller.

The aforementioned delivery times are averages. Maximum delivery times cannot be guaranteed, and it sometimes happens that an application remains pending for processing for longer than usual. This could happen if you make a mistake filling out your information in the application form or when submitting a digital passport copy which does not meet the requirements.
Extensive checks after submitting your application
Before the Egyptian Immigration Service start processing your application, it is extensively checked by a e-Visa.co.uk visa specialist. They will check whether your documents are up to standard for the application. It is also checked whether the passport information that you entered in the application form mirrors the data on the passport copy. This way, any inaccuracies or omissions can nearly always be corrected in time.
Only if and when everything checks out, your application will be submitted to the Egyptian Immigration Service. Following this, however, a delay may still arise, due to for instance, technical issues, or resulting from an Immigration Service sample check. e-Visa.co.uk cannot exert any influence for swifter processing of your application in such or other cases, including in the case you filed an urgent application. An urgent visa is only issued faster due to up front error checking and preliminary application form processing by e-Visa.co.uk. Wherever possible, for urgent applications, this is also done outside of office hours, on weekends and during public holidays.
No time left to wait for even urgent visa processing?
In the event even the average delivery time of 5 days for urgent applications would not save your travel plans, after airport arrival in Egypt it is still possible to apply for a visa on arrival. Although this possibility is often recommended against due to long waiting lines and subsequent delays, it may prove an outcome for travellers who can’t apply for their online visas in time.
