Bulgaria has joined the European Union in 2007, and starting 2017, Egypt has allowed the release of electronic visas for all the citizens of the Union, which means that an Egypt visa for Bulgarian citizens is one of the most accessible things ever. If you are from Bulgaria, you can avoid the Egyptian embassy altogether. All you have to do is use the services provided by iVisa. It is cheap, efficient, and your efforts are minimal.
What are the required documents?
While the process is a piece of cake, you still need a few things to get the process going. iVisa provides a short list of what you need, and it is entirely possible that you have everything on that list already. Here is what you are required to provide:
A valid passport – if you do not have a passport, you can get one easily. If you have one, make sure that it is valid and will remain as such at least for another six months from your date of arrival in Egypt. Otherwise, your visa application will be denied.
A scan of the information page of your passport – you will be required to upload it in step three of the application form.
Complete a personal questionnaire – step three of the application form will also require you to answer a set of personal questions. It is nothing out of the ordinary. They just want to know the reasons for your travels and such. It should take about 5 minutes of your time.
Means of payment – since you are required to make the payment before you submit your application (step two of the application,) you need to have a credit or debit card ready. If you have a Paypal account, you should know that iVisa accepts that as well.
The Application Form
Once that you crossed everything off the above list, you can move forward to the application form. It is a simple online form, and it should take about 20 minutes to complete. For your convenience, iVisa has designed a three-step application form. The first one will ask you to fill in your basic information, choose the visa type, and the processing time. Keep in mind that the last two things will affect the cost of the visa. As for processing time, you have three options:
Standard processing time – when you select this option, your Egypt e-visa will arrive via e-mail within 5 business days. This is the cheapest processing time you have at hand. It costs only $50. $25 is the price of the visa itself, and the other half goes to iVisa as a service fee.
Rush processing time – this option will shorten the application processing time by one day. Your application will be processed within four business days, and you will be charged $80.
Super Rush processing time – if you have an emergency and need to be on a plane to Egypt as fast as possible, this is the option for you. Your application will be processed within 3 business days. As you may have guessed, the price goes higher as well. You will be charged $115.
The fees above apply to the single-entry visa. The multiple-entry version costs $35 more for each processing time. The second step consists of a fast revision and payment. Make sure that all the information you put in is accurate. The third step will ask you to upload additional documents and answer a few personal questions. After you are done, all that is left for you to do is wait.
An Egypt visa for Bulgarian citizens is one of the easiest documents to obtain. iVisa ensures that, and if you need any help with the process, you can refer to iVisa’s support service. Someone is ready to take your call 24/7.
