Living in Egypt
Egypt is a country of contrasts where the lush Nile valley gives way to the vast sandy desert. The birthplace of the first great civilisation, it is of course home to the spectacular pyramids of Giza and other ancient ruined temples. Modern-day Cairo is a buzzing metropolis that retains medieval mosques, minarets and churches. The city has a vibrant café culture and numerous markets and bazaars where you can practise your haggling skills.
Visas and Medical
To work in Egypt, you will need an entry visa, residence permit, and work permit. You will require a clean bill of health and extensive documentation. For more information, see http://www.expatarrivals.com/egypt/work-permits-for-egypt. Public healthcare is available in Egypt but the quality is variable so expats are recommended to have private health insurance. Many international schools offer private health insurance as part of the benefits package.
