Jeepers! "Incomplete Visa Requirements" sounds like something straight out of the movie, 'Rendition'. Glad you made it back OK.

Bummer. Looks like they're getting back at us for our post 9-11 visa restrictions!

I had a similar problem when I tried to visit Prague 7 years ago. I spoke to the Czech embassy and websites before leaving and was told that I would not need a visa. But it turns out Canadians (I had only one citizenship at the time) did need a visa [I feel it was due to payback for international hockey losses]. I was stopped before boarding the plane. Stayed in Paris to try to sort out the visa issue but could not within a span workable for my vacation.

In the mid-90s, tried to go to Saudi Arabia, but required arrangement of an invitation to the Kingdom from a local native. So the issues getting into Saudi Arabia pre-date 9-11.


That is amazing that you were able to spend a couple of nights in the Cairo city. In the US, in case of visa or transfer visa problem they chain you in the immigration office.
