Exclamation Immigration in Cairo airport?

Hello
I think to do couple of mile runs via Cairo airport,and i have question.
For example: Turkish airlines flight.It arrives in 7.55,and departure in 10.05,do i need pass immigrations if ill do checkin online?
So i mean i will arrive,and then just go to the gate,is it possible(i dont have luggage)?

You'll have to move up to the departure level. But that's not difficult: follow the sign to transfers, join the queue for security then up you go.

That's if you have a boarding card. If you haven't you'll have to join the queue at the transfer desk before joining the queue for security.

Timatic is clear as mud.

I am looking at a six hour layover JNB-CAI-MUC on EgyptAir. One pax is Canadian citizen, the other U.S. Citizen. We are happy remain within the airport.

Visa required for Egypt, yes or no?

No.

If for any reason you should need a visa (delay, whim etc) it's an astonishingly simple process to get one at the airport: you simply buy the visa sticker at one of the foreign exchange counters.
