Pakistanis in Egypt consist of migrants and expatriates from Pakistan in Egypt and their descendants. In 2004 alone, the population was estimated at 500, which rose to 700 by 2011. The community is mostly made up of recently settled families; the Pakistan International School of Cairo was established in 1981 and largely caters to Pakistani students.
In 2005, Egyptian police were in search of five Pakistani nationals who were required for inquiry along with 70 other individuals, in connection with details about a series of bombings in the Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheik which left 88 dead. The incident was thought to affect the community with arising suspicion. According to former president Pervez Musharraf, many Pakistanis staying in Egypt tend to use it as a long-term route to travel to Europe to find jobs.
