We leave for our first tour of Egypt at the end of next week (18th Jan).
I generally travel with a reasonable amount of camera gear (2 bodies, a bunch of lenses, tripod, flash, filters etc) and have a few questions about permits for cameras at sites within Egypt.
Are you normally charged a fee per camera or per photographer? For example, if I'm taking in 2 cameras do I have to pay twice??
Also, do you need to pay extra if you wish to use a tripod?? Some places around the world consider you to be a professional photographer if you're using a tripod and charge accordingly. Are you able to use tripods at all within any of the sites in Egypt??
Lastly, I'm assuming that all large camera bags will be scanned and/or inspected. Has anyone had any trouble with scanners or inspectors in Egypt??
Thanks heaps in advance for any information. It would be nice to know what to expect and a little about how much to budget for before we get there.
Thanks again for any help or advice.
