It has been mentioned before about what and how to pay for your visa when you arrive in Luxor but I would like to pass on to anyone who is new to this forum that you should get your visa from the airport and not your rep.
I received my tickets on monday and on the front inside cover it said;
(in bold) Important arrival and departure information
"you will be met our agent ****** to assist you through immigration and customs. Please note the cost of a visa stamp upon arrival is approximately £13 sterling pounds,"
My understanding is that a visa costs $15 American.
Even with a weak pound £10 English should cover the cost.
£3 may not sound a lot to each person but when you think that it might be a plane load of people, well it is.......just be aware please.
I would rather give those few extra £'s to a local taxi driver etc. than to some fat cat 'agent'.
I hope that I have not ranted on too much about this but If I had not read about it on this forum then I would not have known about this 'scam'.
I just wanted any newbies to know.........I could not believe it when I saw it in black and white!
Thanxs to all with the advice you give, most helpful,
Take care, (29 sleeps to go-soz-had to do it!)
