The climate is very dry with sun almost guaranteed on a daily basis, as well as a northerly wind. Therefore, plan for warm clothes (fleece & jogging pants) to wear on the boat after diving during the period December – March.

 

Sun cream is recommended all year round.

 

Entry in Egypt

 

If you are an EU or Swiss passport holder, you may obtain a tourist visa from your travel agent, at any Egyptian Embassy or consulate in your country of residence or directly at the airport on arrival (for around US$ 15). Your passport should be valid for at least six months from the date of entry.

 

Currency

 

The local currency is the Egyptian pound (LE). Exchange rates are generally better in Egypt than abroad and money exchange is available in many places including all hotels, exchange offices and banks in Hurghada. US Dollars, Euros, Sterling Pounds and Swiss Francs are generally welcomed everywhere. Visa, MasterCard, Amex and Diners cards are accepted by hotels and can be used to get cash (in Egyptian Pounds only) in banks and at ATM machines. Travellers cheques are accepted by banks.

 

Language

 

Arabic is the national language of Egypt but in Hurghada, most people employed within the tourism industry speak several languages including English, French, German, Italian and Russian.
