Egypt Expat Guide
Begin Your New Life as an Expat in Egypt
The beauty of the Nile, the history of the magnificent pyramids and mesmerizing belly dancers are perhaps the first things that come to mind when considering Egypt — and while these are wonderful things worth seeing, some of the modern realities of living in Egypt may surprise you. Unspoiled coastlines just a couple of hours drive from Cairo make every weekend a summer vacation, while opulent malls mean you never have to give up your favorite stores. Plus, any fears of having to give up your after-work beer in a Muslim country are put to rest once you've been introduced to the thriving bar scene (hotel bars and expat clubs are even open during Ramadan). Indeed, the most resounding benefit cited by many expats in Egypt is the superior quality of life afforded. Look for jobs offering packages on top of a salary (these are numerous) and with your accommodation and flights home taken care of, you'll have plenty of time to explore the many facets of Egyptian life. The work-life balance is certainly more relaxed than many Westerners are used to, making a move to Egypt very rewarding.
Build Your Network of Expats in Egypt
Negotiating a move to a new country like Egypt might seem daunting at first, but, with a wealth of information available through InterNations and support from people who have been through the same processes, you'll soon be able to concentrate on enjoying your new life in Egypt. Immersing yourself in Cairo's shimmering nightlife will make you feel at home in no time, and the real life monthly events organized by InterNations — such as nights in Cairo's hot spot bars — are the perfect way to start! You can also join smaller groups based on various interests and hobbies to visit restaurants of all sorts of cusines, take fun trips on the Nile, or visit interesting culture sites.
