Cairo's Most Desirable Neighbourhoods For Expats

Monday June 18, 2018 (09:19:00)

One of the most important decisions you will have to make as an expat is where to base yourself. You want your new home to be in a safe area of your chosen country, with all the specific amenities that you need for your lifestyle. You will have to consider many aspects such as whether your preferred area is located near good schools for your children to attend, or how long your commute to work would be. This is especially relevant when we’re talking about Cairo, as the traffic there is insane! This decision can be difficult if you’re moving to a country that you have never stepped foot in before; how can you possibly start to guess which areas would be safest or most centrally located?   more ...

A Guide To Expat Healthcare In Egypt

Thursday November 30, 2017 (17:29:47)

Egypt doesn’t always appear in lists of the most popular destinations among expats. This is largely because of the prevalent economic and political instability there, especially since the dawn of the Arab Spring in 2011, which resulted in many migrants fleeing the country. Although Egypt has regained some stability in recent years, there continue to exist concerns about poverty, unemployment, rising cost of living and strained relations between the various religious communities of the country. In spite of all this, there are still plenty of expats who have made Egypt their home and continue to live there successfully.   more ...

Egypt is a fascinating country, both historically and in contemporary times. Geographically, as well as culturally and politically, it ties together Asia, Africa, and Europe in many ways. Egypt is where we find some of the oldest evidence for key human inventions and developments such as agriculture, writing, cities, the nation state, and of course religion.

The ancient Egyptian religion was a complex polytheistic system that went through many changes over the 3,000 years of its existence.   more ...

Egypt has long been a popular tourist destination in the Middle East. Its rich cultural heritage and natural beauty, combined with its modern-day development and large, diverse economy have made it a great place to visit.

Unfortunately the frequent political tension has made it a less than ideal expat location, apart from of course affecting tourism. More recently, since the events of the Arab Spring in 2011, Egypt has once again been in a state of almost constant political turmoil.   more ...

Preparing Yourself For Culture Shock: Five Cultural Customs You May Not Know About In Egypt

Wednesday April 15, 2015 (00:25:33)

Figuring out what to expect in Egypt can be quite confusing for many expats. Most people across the world have a strange assortment of disjointed facts, myths, and complete fiction associated with Egypt. There are notions about pyramids and pharaohs’ curses, a vague awareness of a cat-worshipping ancient civilization (at least in the minds of most modern cat lovers), and some superficial knowledge of the political uprisings and upheavals of the last several years. Naturally, this fragmented picture depicts Egypt as much more other-worldly than it really is. In reality, Egypt is a modern, developed, diverse country that most expats quite readily adjust to. Nonetheless, it does have many cultural practices that may take some getting used to.   more ...
