Ahram Online , Tuesday 30 Jun 2020


Egypt’s National Telecommunications Regulations Authority (NTRA) has imposed an extra charge on all imported mobile phones, starting from Wednesday.

According to the new decision, mobile phone importers will pay 5 percent of the value of the customs bill as a fee to the NTRA.

“The fees are for handling the services to operate the mobile phones in Egypt,” read a statement by the NTRA.

Egypt has only one domestic mobile phone manufacturer, Sico Technology.
