Egypt may have a troubled recent past but there's business to be done and families to send items to via international courier services. There is a large number of tourists visiting Egypt throughout the year to and this in turns drives up the number of parcels sent from the UK.
The history of the country is as well-documented as it is lengthy, with many of the world's most important historic sites located within its borders. It's one of the most populous countries in either Africa or the Middle East with no fewer than eighty-one million inhabitants and a landmass of a similar size to Ethiopia.
We can help you send a small package to Egypt for under £15 with DPD. They can send a parcel from the UK to Egypt in as little as 3-6 days.
Parcelforce also offers delivery to Egypt in 3-4 working days and you can choose to have the parcel collected or to Drop Off at the Post Office.
When it comes to postage, we have tracked mail services with TrakPak available too.
For those more urgent or time-sensitive parcels, the quickest service to Egypt is DHL who can deliver your parcel in just 2-3 days. For a cheaper price, and just a day longer transit time you can make use of our Parcel Monkey Air Express service which will deliver to Cairo and beyond in 3-4 days for half the price of DHL.
If you want to send a much heavier parcel weighing 30kg, the options would be more limited but we can still help you book either economy tracked mail via TrakPak or an express service via DHL, Parcel Monkey or Parcelforce.
No matter which courier you opt to use when sending a parcel to Egypt, our price is sure cheaper than you are likely to get by booking directly with a courier or at the Post Office.
Today much of Egypt's economy is dependent on petroleum exports and tourism, with a degree of agricultural exports too. Of course, the Suez Canal is also a very significant income source and delivers many millions of Egyptian Pounds into the Ministry of Finance.
When sending parcels to Egypt it is important to note that DVDs, CDs and Videos are subject to censorship. Furthermore, many types of office equipment may be subject to inspection by the Anti-Forgery Department. Also, telephony and satellite equipment must be approved.
It would be advisable not to send any jewellery by international courier services into the country either.

Easy to use Great pricing
Was really worried at first but they got my parcel to its destination quick and in good condition would recommend to anyone had no problems to call customer service so don’t know what that’s like
Spot on service , easy to track and delivered bang on time !
Still in transit 7 days later. Parcel sat in Customs for 2 days. Our customer not happy and neither is my MD with me. Cheers!
good job, fast and accurate
Parcel Monkey got us a good price on a parcel to Egypt. If i was doing this again Id register a few days before and do the whole process over a few days, some of the so called restrictions get emailed to you at various times and it was a little hassle, but maybe that was the carriers and not Parcel Monkey. Ive already recommended Parcel Monkey already to others, did the job, and Id use them again.
I have used Parcel Monkey service twice in the last couple of weeks. very happy with the service. parcel arrives fast, price is very compatible. will use them again
On the whole a good service, l had a problem because l dont have a printer and had to ask a neighbour to help out. The charges for my l kg parcel were half the cost of the Royal Mail so on that basis l would definately use them again. The fact the parcel was collected was a bonus.
