Egypt Visa Changes - Insight and advice needed (Cairo)

Can anyone shed any light on the new visa requirements? Have they been implemented yet? If not - then when?

The news reports I am reading state it could come into play as early as next week but some are already reporting airlines refusing passenger boarding if a valid visa is not present in passport.

I live in Egypt on a tourist visa but do not work here. I travel regularly out of the country for my business - I am a consultant - and have a trip planned which could see me flying in the next 10 days. My immediate concern is that if I leave the country I may not be able to come home.

Any and all information/updates or advice would be appreciated.
