Crime is not a real concern for investors in Egypt. Here you will find a summary of the crime situation and learn about its relevance to your purchase in Egypt.
The existence of past terrorist attacks in tourist resorts cannot be overlooked when travelling to Egypt. However these threats can cause one to be over cautious and in reality popular opinion is that Egypt poses little more risk than a visit to any other Arab state. Egypt’s political situation today is described as stable and a completely democratic republic is expected in the near future, boding well for the country as a whole.
Day to day crime in Egypt is rare and violence is usually limited to isolated cases and family feuds. However, in tourist areas, some pickpockets and petty thieves may exist and there is a valuable and helpful tourist police service in many busy areas and they are usually close at hand.
Women must be cautious, especially in out-lying areas. In Egypt, a woman traveling alone is generally safe, but she will be noticed, though less in large cities than in the countryside. However, if problems do occur, you should seek help from the police or any shop nearby. Simple precautions such as not walking in deserted areas alone should be taken in Egypt, as in many other countries of the world.
