Cairo Airport

Jump to last reply

I have a 21 hour layover at Cairo airport in August. I'm wondering if thats going to be comfortable. What is the airport like? Enough decent places to eat at and clean toilets etc? How about the lounge chairs - comfortable enough to get some sleep? I will be in transit so will I be restricted to say just one gate area and consequently not be able to access the dining places? And finally would it be safe to sleep there overnight? I arrive at around noon and my connecting flight is around 9am or so the next day.

Is it easy to get a Transit Visa to explore Cairo for some time? Any suggestions on what to do? and how to get around? I am not sure if I will be able to get a Transit Visa because my passport will be valid only for about 2 months on the day I transit thru Cairo. Some countries require that you have at least 6 months validity on your passport.

Many thanks in advance for your comments and suggestions.
