Buying your visa at Hurghada airport is also not a problem. The queue at the ‘bank’ moves fairly quickly and you will find this located just inside the immigration hall. $25, or around £20-£25 will get you a visa entry stamp popped into your passport. Venture further into the immigration hall and your will find tour reps selling visas also, but these may cost you a little more.
Don’t forget your landing card! This is different to your visa and every person must complete one before going through immigration. Your airline should give you your landing card on the plane. If you aren’t given landing cards you can pick some up in the immigration hall. Have a pen ready!
When you are departing from Terminal 1 at Hurghada airport (most international flights), timing is key! Do not under estimate how long it will take you to get through the security checking processes. We recommend that customers allow a minimum of 2 hours to get through the airport and to your departure gate.
You may have an airport transfer included in your package holiday. If so, you will be met by your tour rep and guided to your correct coach. If you don’t have a transfer included do plan ahead. Hurghada airport does not have shuttle buses and there isn’t a general taxi rank. There are ‘white airport taxis’ that you will be guided to but do make sure you have deep pockets if you choose to use these!
If you need to arrange your own Hurghada Airport transfer we really do recommend that you pre-book. This has the advantage of having a meet and greet service as you come out of the arrivals hall and also means that you will pay a fair and affordable price for our transfer to your resort.
