Egypt Duty Free Shops
Each passenger who arrives in Egypt has the option of using the duty free shops within 48 hours after each arrival in Egypt, up to a maximum of four arrivals per calendar year for non-Egyptians. A passport to prove the time of the arrival must be presented by the owner.
Each passenger is entitled to up to US$ 200 worth of consumable items duty-free. If you buy goods above $ 200, you pay duty on the amount above $ 200. Liquor and cigarettes are available as well as food, perfume, cosmetics and many other things.
On arrival, at the airport duty free shops, 4 bottles of wine or spirits (or 3 bottles and 1 case of beer) and 4 cartons of cigarettes may be purchased there. If you go to the duty free shops in town, only 3 bottles of wine or spirits (or 2 bottles and 1 case of beer) and 3 cartons of cigarettes may be purchased.
