Has anyone else recently had this problem?
My family and I have lived in Cairo for 14 months under tourist visas, renewing it every three months at Mogamma. I know of other people who have lived here much longer than this under a tourist visa. But I went into Mogamma this week and they told me that they have no stopped giving tourist visas to people after 6 months of stay. So they said I could get a month exit visas, but would have to leave after this is up. So I could not get a renewed three months on me and my family's visas as usual.
Could someone help me in finding a way stay longer? We have our home set up here and my wife is pregnant right now, planning to give birth in Egypt. Now would not be the ideal time to move at all for us. I had also planned to start working as an English teacher at the beginning of next year.
I've heard of people going to Sharm or Hurghada to renew visas, does anyone know if these places will still renew after six months? Or, has anyone started taking courses at a school to be here as a student?
Any ideas or real information on this would be great as there doesn't seem to be anything written out on these sudden new rules.
