Visa for 2 entrances to EgyptI will enter Egypt 2 times. 1 - come by a plane from USA. 2 - come by a bus from Israel. Can I get a visa on my arrival in Cairo airport which allows me to enter several times to Egypt? Also I have 2 passports: Russian and American. Which passport is the best to use on my trip in Egypt?

1I don't know about the RUssian one, but for $15 USD you can get a MULTIPLE entry visa good for 30 days. I got mine in the US at the embassy as we were arriving overland into Egypt from Libya. However, we were told at the embassy, the same visa is available at the airport in Cairo.
I'd double check on the consulate website, but I don't think traveling witht he Russian passport would give you a visa for much cheaper.

3They like TOURISTS ;-) We bring money! Egypt in some ways is extremely tourist friendly (cheap and easy visas, special considerations for tourists)...but still is a country filled with hassles.
The top two lines in the table.. US and Russia. both $15USD for the multiple.

4Multiple entry visa is NOT available at the airport and you CANNOT get a visa at the land border from Israel. If you want multiple entry you have several choices:
1. easiest is to get it from an embassy beforehand.
2. get a re-entry permit (tashirat khurug wa ouda I think they call it) from the passports and immigration office when you are in the country. You need to be sure you get the re-entry permit, which is separate from the visa extension which most foreigners go to these offices for (but I think you might have to get that as well before you can get the re-entry permit).
3. you should be able to get a visa at the Egyptian consulate in Eilat, but that is obviously the least secure version.
