Pakistanis in Egypt consist of migrants and expatriates from Pakistan in Egypt and their descendants. In 2004, the population was estimated at 500,[3] which rose to 700 by 2011.[1][2] The community is mostly made up of recently settled families; the Pakistan International School of Cairo was established in 1981 and largely caters to Pakistani students.[4]

In 2005, Egyptian police were in search of five Pakistani nationals who were required for inquiry along with 70 other individuals, in connection with details about a series of bombings in the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheik which left 88 dead.[5] The incident was thought to affect the community with arising suspicion. According to former President Pervez Musharraf, many Pakistanis staying in Egypt tend to use it as a long-term route to travel to Europe to find jobs.[5]


The Pakistan International School of Cairo is located in Giza.
