Visa to Egypt
Fondest memory: We had a surprise from the first beginning, although we were told that this is quite common in Egypt.
The entry visa that everybody told us that will cost around USD 15- became USD 25- starting the night we arrived there.
Actually the visa consists in 2 stamps to be bought from a desk at the entrance in the airport and stick on the passport.
The ones that didn’t filled in the entry application received in the plane, had to do in the airport, after buying the visa.
Nobody asked us if we have something to declare (as we were used in other European airports), the custom officer just stamped the passport and welcomed us to Egypt.
Police watch tower in St. Catherine Protectorate
Fondest memory: All along the way to St. Catherine Monastery we met a lot of police patrols.
When we entered the Protectorate the police officers stopped us in order to verify if there were Jewish persons without visa among us.
Fondest memory: I was used not to exchange money in the airport as the FX rate is lower than the normal one, but I found in Cairo airport the same FX rate as in all the FX offices around Egypt. So feel free to exchange money there as it's better to go around with local money instead of foreign currency.
