Living in Egypt


I visit Egypt for holidays. 

The company where I am working have a subsidary in Egyppt. I am thinking seriously to go settle down there as an expat.  

I need your advises and recommandations please for a single woman, for security, safety, health, entertainment, costs, ....

Have a wonderful day.


Hello CDieme59 it all depends on the place you want to settle down in , say the city you will stay and I will share my recommendation to you 

All the best x

Thanks for reply. 
I would like to come and stay working there for 6 months. The company where I am now working, have a subsidary in Cairo. So, I would liké to request to change my living country, from France to Egypt for 6months. 
Hope this IS clear :) 
@CDieme59 I am in the same situation, want to settle down in Egypt (Alexandria).

I already know that you can only open a bank account in Egypt if you have a 1-year residency visa, which you have to show in the bank.

We need to find out how to get the 1-year residency visa first. If you find out something let me know.
Have you settled yet or still need help?
