Employee Leasing / Outstaffing in Cairo and Egypt

With over 100 million people, Egypt is by population the third-largest country in Africa and the 14th largest country in the world. This is a huge and growing market to sell products and services.

A good way to successfully enter the Egyptian market is to “lease” your own local team. By this approach, you do not have to register and administrate a local company. We call this service “Employee Leasing”, it also may be known as outstaffing, temping, employment outsourcing, or employer of record (EOR).

It is a fast, hassle-free, and flexible way to promote your services & products in Egypt together with your own employees according to your own strategy. You will be totally focusing on your business while we take care of all local requirements and the long and complex administrative issues (Egypt currently ranks 114th in World Bank’s “Ease of doing business index”).

Our clients usually use Employee Leasing for sales, business development, distributor management and service & maintenance. It is always possible to exit the market whenever you see it necessary.

Why It is Interesting to Enter the Egyptian Market

Egypt is one of the world’s most attractive investment destinations thanks to its accelerating economic growth, a wide range of reforms, and resilience to crises and economic cycles. Egypt was one of very few countries to experience economic growth in 2020 where its real GDP grew by 3.6% despite the global impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

From an investor’s point of view, there are many market opportunities and untapped growth potential in Egypt evidenced by the following:

  • A large and young population in excess of 100 million with an average age of 25 years. Egypt’s population is expected to reach 160 million by 2050
