Egypt Prohibited and Restricted Items

FedEx Cross Border is unable to ship prohibited and non-approved restricted items on behalf of its customers.

FedEx Cross Border has prepared a global list of prohibited and restricted items that apply regardless of a shipment's destination. In addition to these global prohibitions and restrictions, individual countries or territories may impose further prohibitions or restrictions on the importation of certain items.

You can refer to the FedEx Cross Border global lists and the Egypt country-specific list to help determine whether or not your product is prohibited or restricted for shipment.
