Foreigners wishing to visit Egypt can now obtain an electronic Egypt e visa online through the government. There are no hassles involved in applying for a visa. Your application will be emailed to you once it has been submitted. While filling out the visa application form, you need to have some required documents prepared, and it will be processed within a few days. Depending on the type of visa and the process you have chosen.

Hi Kyle,

Can you apply for the renewal/extension online now? Because that was the biggest hassle when we lived in Egpyt. For most expats, getting an Egypt visa was the easy part. We get a 30-day visa on arrival. The annoying part was getting the 6-month renewal in person at the visa office.

Cheers,

Marco

Hey Marco,
How easy (or not) would you say it is to find "contract type jobs" - or freelancing type jobs - for the "not so young anymore"?
Is there a cap on age to apply for a residency visa?

Hi Belinde,

Depends on what you mean by contract or freelancing. Do you mean working in Turkey for a Turkish company? If so, then it is a bit difficult for the young and not-so-young alike 🙂
Also, compared to the US or most Western EU countries, the wages would be very low. A better choice is a remote job without geographic restrictions and better pay.

With many remote jobs, age doesn't matter, just the ability to get the job done.

Good luck,

Marco
