I talk with banks in egypt they told me that need to have temporary residence. It is possible to avoid this thing?

Check HSBC and CIB.

You will find it extremely difficult to open a bank account if all you have is a tourist visa, in fact I believe it is impossible. Be extremely careful bringing such a large sum of money into Egypt except through proper banking channels: you could lose the lot.

That's true. You must follow the legal channels and have the necessary documents for the sources of your funds.
