Egyptian Residence through marriage

So my wife is an Egyptian citizenship, but we have been living in the US for the last 3 years. She wants to go back to Egypt around summer of 2014, so I was wondering how I would be able to get a residence card to live in Egypt with my wife.

Residency visas can only be applied for and obtained in Egypt.
Your wife and you should go to the Mogamma with every piece of paper you own that shows you are married, plus lots of passport sized photos.. small change.
It should be a simple matter because you are married to an Egyptian but do not take this as fact..

Because you married an Egyptian women, you will only get a temporary residency visa, you will not be able to work. You will not be able to get citizenship.
Expect numerous visits to Mogamma.

You will be entitled to a 3 year residence permit which allows you to leave and come back to Egypt as many times as you like but you can not stay more than 6 months at a time outside of Egypt. When you apply your wife must be with you and you need your marriage certificate proof and of residence ( an electric bill with the address ) proof of income (bank statement authenticated or
a current visa card.) also your passport must be valid for the period of residence required.
