As of December 2017, the citizens of 46 countries can get a visa for Egypt using an online process. The document is called an electronic visa, and the application process is entirely online. An Egypt visa for Maltan citizens is accessible using the services provided by iVisa, and if you are interested in applying, all you need to do is fill in an online form. Your visa will arrive via e-mail in as little as three days, and you barely have to do anything.
What do you need?
Before filling in the form, it is recommended to gather all the required documents. The list is not very long, and there is a pretty good chance that you already have everything you need. Here is the list of what you are required to have:
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.
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.
A valid e-mail address – iVisa will send you the document via e-mail, which means that there is no room for error when you fill in the application. If you fail to type in the correct address, you will not have access to your visa, which is most unfortunate because you have to go through the application process again. Double-check the spelling before you submit your application, and you should be fine.
Egypt Visa for Maltan citizens – processing time and fees
One of the best things about evisas is that they are cheap to acquire. The cost depends on two things: visa type and processing time. As for the latter, iVisa gives you 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.
As for visa type, you have two choices: single-entry visa and multiple-entry visa. The fees for the first one can be found above, while the second is $35 more expensive.
As you can see, getting an Egypt visa for Maltan citizens requires little effort and money. The application form should take about 20 minutes to complete, and if you find yourself in need of assistance, iVisa has a support service that is available 24/7.
