visa reopens, so off I went.....

Post by Dusak »

....yesterday as I was three weeks over. You receive a ticket at the door and wait on the street until your number is called or you get the Egyptian finger pointed in your direction. They only allow three in at a time. I had to wait an hour in the hot sun, but at least I was on the steps. Every foreigner that waited had a face mask on, but two that had an Egyptian ''escort'' did not. Each posses was long, about half an hour per person. At the door there was no temperature test, nor hand sanitizer offered, also the handful of Egyptians there without face masks had no problem going in or out, even though there where two posters on the outside wall displaying such information from WHO. Social distancing was practiced when inside, at least four seats separation. When my number was called, an old lady that looked around eighty plus attempted to get in front of me out of turn, but a quick Panza maneuver quickly put her where she belonged, behind me. The cost had increased to 1,695Le. Also you had to have your photo taken and fingerprints via a bio-metric scanner. no visas were issued, everyone had to return this Sunday to pick them up, a fact that I will be happy with as then I can use my bank account.

From what I hear Dusak they are no longer going to stamp your passport but you will be issued with a card.

Question for Dusak.
When you went for your visa did you have to take a photograph and the usual photo copies of your documents, has there been any change in the leave every 12 months rule?

Yes carrie, you still need all the paperwork and photos. As for the 12 month rule, I don't know as yet after I visit on sunday I will post an update on Any new rules and regulations.
