The Egyptian Tax Authority has suspended any dealings through paper tax card and replaced it with the magnetic card (Smart Card).  On the such account, the Head of the Egyptian Tax Authority has confirmed that the paper tax card for both importers and exporters shall be suspended in any dealings with the Customs Department, effective on December 31th, 2017.  Accordingly, the new smart tax card shall be used starting from January 1st, 2018.

It’s worth noting that the Director of the Central Department of the Affairs of the Commercial Community has broadened the scope of such suspension to include any dealings with all the customs departments either importing and exporting or otherwise.
