History of Egypt
The country of Egypt, located in Northeastern Africa, has one of the richest and most well-documented histories of any country in the world. One of the first world mega powers, the history of Egypt can be traced all the way back to 10,000 BC. Between tombs, hieroglyphics, pyramids, and ancient cities, there are a number of ways a person can learn about life in early Egypt. One of the main reasons why Egypt arose so quickly is because of its location. The Northern border is along the Mediterranean Sea, one of the major bodies of water in terms of trade for early civilizations. Egypt also has the Nile River, the longest in the world, which allowed for trade and resources to be shipped quickly.
Egypt is also the most populated country in what is considered the “Arab world,” and is the 3rd most populated country in Africa. The majority of the population still lives along the Nile River, because the rest of the geography of the land is sandy desert where it is tough to grow vegetation. Having one of the largest economies in the Middle East, Egypt is starting to grow back into a world power, with their economy projected to be one of the largest globally in the 21st century.
Many countries have items that are prohibited or restricted from being imported and exported. These items may include food, pets and medications and customs regulations are subject to change at any time. When traveling to Egypt you want to be sure to research all customs regulations. This can be done with your local embassy or the country’s consulate prior to relocating. You can also visit VisaHQ.com, they offer customs regulations for numerous countries.
