Egypt’s capital is a fairly formal city when it comes to business attire, so plan accordingly.
- For women, skirts should cover the knee, necklines should be high and sleeves should reach the elbow. A sensible suit is always a good choice.
- Men should also leave their more casual attire at home — dark suits are de rigueur, even in Egypt’s warm climate.
- Exchanging business cards is a common practice in Cairo. Come armed with a plentiful supply to ensure you don’t run out.
