Gullwing very informative as have been all blogs, I am currently UAE based (although in the middle of Gulf of suez at moment)and moving to Cairo in September, I would like to bring my 2003 GMC envoy which i bought 18 months ago 2nd hand. I presume that i will have to wait till i get my work permit/ residence visa before i can bring the car in on a customs plate. Any idea how long you have to wait for residency/visa to be issued?

Also Shabrash did you drive through Saudi? what was it like getting visas etc and which point did you exit to Jordan? its an option but will probably get it shipped
Regards
Kev

Hi if you are British and you are wanting to import a car to Egypt for an Egyptian friend can he / she not tell you? What do you mean ' what year the car should be ' ?

My advise would be to to forget it. $1700 from England? thats not alot in sterling and will prob cost more in taxes and not worth the hassle

My wife and I have dual citizenships, we've Egyptian and American citizenship and we currently live in America, but we've decided to move back to Egypt for good, so as Egyptian citizens; (1)Can we take our 2 personal used cars to Egypt and be able to drive it with custom plates by paying fees every 3 month for each car? a friend of mine just moved to Egypt and he told me that I can bring my personal car and use customs plate numbers and pay just 400 LE every 3 months per each car, (2) Is this a correct information? Please I need your urgent answer since we are leaving by the middle of next month (January 2010).
Also; (3) Do we need any paperwork from here (USA) beside the Title (Proof of ownership)? (4) What is a trip ticket? and (5) how can I go about getting it? (6) What is a Carnet Du Passage? and (7) How and from where to obtain it? and last: (8) What other steps required if any to easily release the cars from the Egyptian customs?
Thank you so much for all your help in advance, merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone.

I do not believe that you can drive on custom plates by paying fees every 3 months... if you could do that every Egyptian here would be doing it
If you have duel nationality I would suggest that you enter Egypt with your American passports as that will then give you access to joing various expat clubs.

Thank you for your quick reply to my inquiry, would you please tell me what are the various expat clubs in Egypt? and what can that benefit my situation or benefit me in general?
Thanks a lot.

Have a look at the stickies at the top of the forum... expat meeting places.

If you enter Egypt with your Egyptian passport you are saying you are here as an Egyptian citizen and in the event of an emergency you will get no help from the American Embassy.

Please let me know if you can help
Dear gullwing:
You seems very knowledgeable about this issue so I would really appreciate it if you can tell me what happened if I'm an Egyptian with American citizenship? I mean I have a dual citizenship, what part of your answer will apply to me if I want to bring my personal used car from USA to Egypt?
Looking forward to hearing back from you.
Thanks a lot

Please be advised that some of your information is true. However, the cars that you would like to export has to be first owner cars. Meaning, you have to have owned it the first year it was manufactured and you will pay Custom duties according to the make and model of the cars. The range is usually 35% on a lower engine or cc motor. The ideal range is from 1600-2000cc size. that would be to keep rather than every three month renewal of temporary visa for vehicle.
