As soon as you land in Egypt you will board a bus and make the short journey to the arrivals lounge. Once inside you must first pick up your Tourist visa (just 1 sticker in your passport) You will be given this by the Charter company Representitive you are flying with (Falke Laurtisen, Apollo, MY Travel, Spies, Tjæreborg, Pyramidene) or if you choose our Visa / meet option one of our representatives.

Next you pass through Immigration (to save time keep your passport open at the visa page as you will be asked to show it again before the baggage reclaim).

After picking up your baggage, make your way out of the airport. Pick up a copy of HELLO RED SEA magazine at the info stand, it's free and will give you a little local info. There is a duty free shop opposite the baggage reclaim to buy Alcohol.

Trolleys in the airport should now be free.

Directly outside the doors you will be met by a representative holding a sign with the name of your Boat/ Group. You are then taken directly by private transfer. The rep will ask for your passports which you will be given back onboard. Please keep these safe.

After the liveaboard you be transferred a hotel for your last evening, then next day to the airport. Please make sure you are ready in time and have your passport and ticket. If you have the last night onboard you will be transferred from the boat directly to the airport. We always allow extra time for check in, remember it's Egypt.
