CAIRO – 30 May 2018: Minister of Immigration and Expatriate Affairs Nabila Makram announced launching the second camp for sons and grandsons of expatriates, for six days starting July 21, in the Red Sea City of Sharm El-Sheikh.

Makram said she would participate in the camp that is scheduled to be from July 16 to 21 for expats aged between 12 and16 years old, affirming the importance of such camps due to unfamiliar traditions and values young expatriates may experience.

Fearing that their sons and daughters may get affected by living abroad, expats called on the ministry to organize events that include sports, entertainment and patriotic activities for their sons, Makram said.

The Immigration Ministry signed in late August, a cooperation protocol with Wellspring Company to organize camps for Egyptian expatriates aged between 12 and 16 years old.

In a statement, the ministry said cooperation with Wellspring Egypt aims to serve Egyptian expatriates and correct their wrong concepts on habits and traditions in Egypt.


Last November, Makram announced organizing a five-day workshop to engage expatriates in sustainable development programs in cooperation with Mexico, as part of the ministry's efforts to participate in implementing Egypt’s vision of 2030.

During her meeting with an Italian delegation in January, Makram stressed the ministry's keenness to support the rights of Egyptians abroad and follow up national issues, mainly through fruitful cooperation with all the Egyptian unions abroad that help expatriates merge into their new communities.
