Luxor airport - when are banks open to get an entry visa

We are flying to Luxor and on reading this forum are planning on getting our visas when we land at Luxor airport. However our flight is not planned to land at Luxor until 22:30

Please can someone advise the opening times for the banks at Luxor airport that issue visas.

Or what time do the banks at the airport shut shop and stop issuing tourist entry vistas.

many thanks

Chris

That sounds very late, which flight are you on, are you coming via Cairo, then if so you will get your visa there. If the flight is from UK the banks will be open to get your visa.

If it is an international flight, the visa banks will be open.

That is, assuming things have returned to some sort of normality when you are due to travel there.

Thank you for your quick replies..

Assuming that the current situation improves and we can actually go ahead with our holiday. We are planned to fly out (Feb 2011), from London Heathrow 15:00 landing at Luxor 22:30 flying with EgypyAir; return flight is from Cairo. Hence the question to make sure we can get a visa on arrival at such a late time in the evening.

cheers

Apparently the banks in Luxor are re-opening today (Wednesday).

When things were normal I often arrived at that sort of time - the banks were always open.
