Egypt: Exporter Guide

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   EG2021-0029

In October 1, 2021, Egypt launched a new pre-clearance system to facilitate trade and improve custom clearance and release time, the Advanced Cargo Information system (ACI) require all shipping documents be received electronically at least 48 hours prior to the arrival of the shipment. Egypt’s Hotel-Restaurant-Institutional (HRI) sector rebounded in 2021 from a sore year in 2020. The HRI sector generated over $13 billion in revenues, recovering to pre-pandemic levels. Egypt imported some $3.35 billion worth of consumer-oriented products in 2021. The United States was the fourth largest exporter to Egypt with approximately $243 million in exports accounting for roughly 10 percent market share. This represents a 19 percent increase over 2020 export value of $204 million. However, U.S.-origin food exports to Egypt face competition from European, Middle Eastern, and increasingly African-origin exports.
