From 1 December until 7 January, visitors to the Egyptian Museum in central Cairo were allowed to take pictures with cameras and mobile phones inside the museum without paying additional fees.

The fees were lifted in a bid to attract more visitors to the museum, which houses countless treasures from Ancient Egypt, including Tutankhamun's mummy and death mask.

Does this mean photography with fees to be re-introduced?
As previously mentioned, it has not been possible to take photographs in most museums and all tombs for at least 8 years, yet you mention the paying of fees for taking photos. Is this an indication of a change in policy by the Ministry of State for Anoitquities, whereby photos are possible upon payment of a fee is to be reintroduced? If so, I see this as not only a means of raising much needed revenue, by the Ministry, but also a very useful means of encouraging those who are dithering over whether to visit Egypt to decide in favour of doing so.
