hmm...what an experience i had at cairo airport and with their immigration officers.All they know is ''money''. I thought and know, transit points are not obliged to control your affairs of passport and visa if you r just transitting.Don't try to pass by cairo, if u are going for a tour there or transitting.They take you to the passport control office, tell you anything they want, ...your visa is not correct or, you are not the owner of your own passport when they can see it's your picture.You'll tell them to call your country's embassy, they'll not...they'll cease your phones, camera, laptop and put u in a room...ask you for money as bribe..if you dont have, you stay in that room..and when you ask to make a call with any of their workers, they take you 20dollars for 3minutes call..when you ask for your luggage to change your clothes, they'll look for it for you and when they bring it to you, they ask for money...and not to talk of asking/sending a worker to buy you food..you'll spend about 40euros for that.and when they bring the food..they'll ask you for a tip..I've never heard this anywhere except this strange country.and we come to your jewelleries, they'll search it, ask you if its gold, take it and go test or do what, i don't know..and when they know its not gold, they bring it back to u..I had to go and meet my husband at Belgium and they said firstly, there is a problem with your visa..what is the problem, they said nothing..call the Belgian embassy in my country to confirm, NOTHING, i wanna call my country's embassy in Egypt, they said, 'NO MOBILE PHONES and even no phoning.I had to be deported back to my country because i told them i ain't got no money..which means, i've lost the money i used for the ticket and for my insurance, visa fee, transportation and the rest.
And the worst thing is, i wasn't the only one...about 10 ladies and 6 or 7men..ALL THEY KNOW IS MONEY, MONEY, MONEY...BRIBERY AND CORRUPTION..i took a secret picture of some of the ladies giving the immigration men money to allow them go..and the workers that take 20, 20USDollaars for 3minutes call..i have alot to say but this is just a tip of the ice berg.Just contact me for more
