Hello Guys,

As per the regulations of the Central Bank Of Egypt, You CANNOT receive US dollars into your EGP bank account unless you provide the bank with a statement "prove of origin" to avoid money laundry and other suspicious activity.

While most of the banks open accounts in only one currency, Faisal Islamic Bank opens the account in 4 currencies and accept wire transfers from upwork without any problems.

So my advice is, if you cannot use a payoneer card, try opening an account with FIB to avoid all the hassle.
