Egypt Confirms USD25 Airport Departure Tax

13 June 2014


Egypt has confirmed that it is adding a USD25 airport departure tax to flight fares to boost revenue for the cash-strapped state.

The levy, which was introduced last month, is in addition to the cost of an entry visa. It is feared that the levy will be a further blow to Egypt's tourism industry, which has already been hard hit following the 2011 uprising that led to the ousting of the country's previous leader Hosni Mubarak.

Last year the number of tourist arrivals to Egypt fell from 14 million in 2010 to 9.5 million, according to statistics from the Egyptian Ministry for Tourism.
