New Egypt airport tax criticised
Text size Aa Aa

Travellers to Egypt will have to pay a new airport tax when leaving the country. This is in addition to an entry fee.

Authorities in Cairo began to charge an €18 fee on airline ticket purchases last month and since then this charge has been passed on to the consumer.

This latest tax has been heavily criticised as being a deterrent for tourists.
