Been thinking about this import issue, thus needing some more advice from those living in Egypt...

What is the import duties for Egypt ?

If someone is moving to Egypt and already will be sending a container of personal belongings, is it advisable to go ahead and include as much of the "toys" now as possible in the same shipment to avoid "import duties" later on ?

Or are the import duties pretty much charged by the official rate when items are sent via reputable carriers like UPD, DHL, etc ? Or will the Customs just make up their own rates ?
