Egypt carnet recent info

I entered Egypt in Nuweiba port on January 30, 2004.

Now Egypt carnets are available just in Nuweiba port for 220$. Wedian Navigation company is the seller.
Or you can negotiate for a transit carnet that costs 100$ (requred 3 hours talks for me and 20$ for the risks )) Sudan visa reqired!

And customs costs 70$

Police and customs officials were very frendful and friendly.

Note that it may work only in Nuweiba port!!!

Also, if you are at that port, there is a Tourist Police guy. He can navigate all the complicated paperwork for you and it's free- he won't even take a tip. Makes it very easy.
