Default potential move to Egypt,

Hi

I have a possibility of work in Egypt for a few years.
I have two young kids . 6 and 2 . and I am married. what is life like in the Cairo area
what are the international schools like, do they have English curriculum?. whole lot of us are Scots, but we live in Spain.

I work up and down west Africa so Im used to "different " living locations but the Family not so much.

Hows the political situation / safety for expats

etc etc?

Hi and welcome

International schools good - best 2 are NCBIS and BISC - English (not scottish ) up to GCSE then IB

Safety is fine - no problems
Depends where you live of course, and where you gunna work
my advice - live close to kids school if possible

Stil in the process of finding out, the agent that got hold of me. Has limited information , but it sounds like the company has an existing office in Cairo and has employees set up in a complex housing area about 20 mins outside Cairo. I will find out more once I get info direct from the potential employer.

Thanks.
