It happens all the time there. You can't even get on a train without being told its a locals train and you are a tourist and so they will lock you up.... Unless you give them backsheish.

For a few bucks they'll show you where Moses was found in the bullrushes.

Re: Use of AIS in Egypt

Egypt joined the International Maritime Organization (IMO) in 1958 and therefore agrees to their mandates, which include carrying of AIS units...

The IMO approved AIS in 2000 and mandated it for certain vessels beginning in 2004 and made it optional for other vessels.

Some things that will get you into trouble are:
  • Using a Class B AIS on a vessel required to carry a Class A unit (Normally 65 feet or over)
  • That if you have AIS installed (Class A or B) you are required to have it turned on, unless it hazards the vessel or its crew.
Whatever was going on in Egypt is governed by International Law and if the Embassy got involved they would have quoted that.
