In light of the economic challenges Egypt is going through, it started to pay great attention towards the real estate sector as it supports the national economy and is considered its backbone. It has already established new cities such as 4G Cities and 5G Cities, and has also made a great effort to encourage real estate investment and real estate exporting with the aim of improving the economic conditions in Egypt. In line with these efforts, it has launched the Investors’ Services Portal as a way of attracting more investments. Let's find out together everything you need to know about this portal.
The Investors’ Services Portal is an online portal launched by the New Urban Communities Authority that offers land plots available for investment in some areas of Egypt, specifically in the newer cities. Through the portal, an investor can reserve a plot of land by creating an account on the system where he registers and submits the company’s data that he is applying through, then he submits all required documents and pays the reservation fees. If he is granted the investment opportunity, he will complete the rest of the procedures, and if he is not granted the opportunity, the reservation fees will be refunded.
It is worth noting that this portal was launched to support real estate investment in Egypt, push the wheel of investment in the newer cities, facilitate procedures for investors, and remove any obstacles that hinder the investment.
The Investors’ Services Portal offers all available land plot investment opportunities in some areas of Egypt, specifically in the newer cities, including:
• Lands smaller than 5 acres used for various activities except industrial and artisanal activities. They include about 25 land plots spread across 6 of the newer cities, which are New Cairo City, Sheikh Zayed City, El Shorouk City, New Obour City, Asyut Al Gadida City, and New Minya City.
• Lands larger than 5 acres used for various activities, including industrial and artisanal activities.
• Lands that are allocated under the usufruct system for specified periods of time. The usufruct system is a legal right in which a person is given the temporary right by the owner to use the land and derive income from it without changing the purpose or designated activity of the land or causing any damages to it.
• Lands that are sold in cash or in-kind, also known as non-monetary, contributions.
