There are two types of Free Zones in Egypt

A- Public Free Zones :

In Egypt, there are seven Public Free Zones provided with basic infrastructure and utilities. A Public Free Zone is managed by a board of directors, in addition to an administrative organ to provide technical, economic and legal advice and offer all needed facilities concerning establishment of projects and issuing the required licenses.

Land offered in exchange for usufruct (rent) is as follows:-

$3.5 per m2 annually for industrial projects.
$7.0 per m2 annually for other projects (storage & services).
A reduction of 50% on these rates granted to Ismailia Public Free Zone Projects.

B- Private Free Zones :

GAFI issues a decree concerning the establishment of Private Free Zone each of which shall be limited to a single project if its nature so necessitates, according to the following criteria: -
1- Its site must enhance its economic status e.g., near raw material sources or establishment on a site appropriate with the nature of its activity (navigation & maritime transport projects, insurance companies, cement silos …etc).
2- IT should contribute to the establishment of new communities according to the current state policy.
3- Unavailability of requested areas of land for the project in the public free zones.
4- The project must observe all standards and regulations pertaining to the protection of the environment.

The authority shall help investors to obtain all necessary infrastructure and utilities needed.
