Just had an email from Thomsons telling us that we need a visa to visit Egypt, a link then passes us to a website offering a service to get a visa. We fly out on Monday so wont be able to receive any post intime, is this normal or can we fill in a visa on the plane?

Unless you are planning certain trips you won't need a visa. You can buy one if needed at the airport for about 15 dollars each. We stay local to sharm ( not going to pyramids etc) and don't need visa.

If your going only to sharm for 15 days or less you do not need a visa

They will also try and sel you a visa when you arrive at the airport in sharm as well. Just walk to baggage claim
