In January, the Egyptian authorities decided to make a New Year’s gift to the citizens of Russia and support them during the crisis period of the collapse of the ruble. Their gift was to eliminate visa fees.

But these changes did not affect the number of tourists in any way. Therefore, from May 1, 2015, Russians again need to pay a visa fee of $ 25. Fortunately, obtaining a visa to Egypt is not difficult: it is placed right at the airport upon arrival.

Reference. Holidays in Egypt in May are ideal, it is not too hot yet, but it is already consistently warm and not windy. Prices for popular resorts – Sharm El Sheikh and Hurghada – hover around $ 600 for one. Flights from Kiev to Sharm El Sheikh or fromKiev to Hurghada – from $ 300. And for a change, you can view options for trips to not very popular Dahab and El-Gouna, especially since the prices there are the same, if not cheaper.
