Within the framework of Egypt’s plan for developing urban areas and providing adequate housing for all Egyptians, over the years it has established various real estate projects that not only serve Egyptians but Egyptians living abroad as well. And one of the most important projects is Beit Al-Watan. Let's take a closer look at this great project in Egypt.


About Beit Al-Watan


Beit Al-Watan is considered one of the largest and most important projects launched by the New Urban Communities Authority, which is affiliated with the Ministry of Housing, Utilities, and Urban Communities. This project has been implemented throughout different areas and governorates across the country, especially in newer cities such as 4G Cities, and is directed towards Egyptians living abroad with the aim of giving them an opportunity to own properties or land plots in Egypt. It is worth noting that this project was named “Beit Al-Watan” as a way of strengthening the connection between Egyptians living abroad and their homeland.

This project aims at encouraging all Egyptians living abroad to invest in properties in Egypt, which is what is also referred to as real estate exporting, as a method of attracting foreign currencies to significantly boost the Egyptian economy.
