Cash-strapped Egypt imposes a new fee for travelers

June 6, 2014

After increasing visa fees and imposing ‘development tax’ in the last two months, Egyptian authorities have now decided to levy a new airport tax on travelers leaving the country.

The government started applying the roughly $25 fee on ticket purchases through airline companies last month, which means that the airline companies have been passing the charge directly on to customers buying tickets to and from the country, with it appearing as an additional tax on the ticket price.
