Reliable Information about living and working in Egypt

Relocating to and living in Egypt necessitates lots of reliable information on different facets of Egyptian expat life. Many questions come up when living overseas in Egypt: ʺAre we, as expats, liable to Egyptian income tax law?ʺ, ʺDoes the Cairo Community Association offer free Arabic lessons?ʺ, ʺHow to find a trustworthy maid in Cairo?ʺ, or ʺWhat are the requirements to get a Egyptian residence permit for my wife?ʺ

Looking for so much information on working and living in Egypt is rather bothersome and requires a lot of time. The InterNations Expat Guide for Egypt is designed to help you and offers trusted information on all issues of interest to expats living in Egypt. Various topics are covered in our Egypt Expat Guide from education and children, to local organisations & companies or travel and accommodation, up to education & children. Such characteristic questions that concern expat life abroad as ʺDo expat women also wear headscarves in public?ʺ will no more remain open.

Of course, InterNations is active far beyond Egypt. Please feel free to explore our expatriate guide on living in Turkey or living in Ecuador.
