As mentioned already, multi-entry MTTs are MTTs that allow you to re-enter into the same tournament.
Going a little be further, multi-entry MTT =/= re-buy MTT. Though similar in that you get to buy into the same MTT again if you bust out, the main difference is that with a multi-entry or re-entry MTTs, you pay the rake every time you do so. With re-buy MTTs, you only play the rake when you initially enter and and then just pay the tournament fee every time you re-buy.
So, if you re-enter 10x into a $1 + .10 re-entry MTT, you're paying $11 total, $1 in rake. If you re-buy 10x into a $1 + .10 re-buy MTT, you $10.10, .10 in rake.
Another key difference is that re-entry MTTs allow you to re-enter any time as long as its within their late registration period. Unlike with re-buys where you have to re-buy then and there. If you don't re-buy with in a given time, usually 30-60 seconds, you are out of the MTT. With a re-entry, you can bust out, then take a break for 10 min, the re-enter again if you wanted.
Finally, most re-entry MTTs start you off with deeper stacks than a re-buy MTT would as re-entry MTTs don't have the option of insant re-buying and adding-on after late reg ends. Re-buy MTTs start off with shallow stacks at ~50 BBs to entice players to re-buy early to have a 100 BB stack early. Re-buy MTTs also have an add-on option that differs between sites.
