New  fees hikes for the issuance of all types of driving licenses have come into force with the aim of financing Egypt's ambitious program of Comprehensive Health Insurance.
According to decree released by Egypt's General Traffic Directorate, up to EGP20 shall be paid a year as fees for the issuance of or renewing driving licenses, EGP50 for vehicles with less than 1600 centimeter cube (CC) engines, EGP150 for vehicles with engines ranging from 1600 CC to 2000 CC and EGP300 for vehicles more than 2000 CC engines.
The sums of money collected shall be deposited at Health Insurance Authority's  account, continued the decree.
The new hikes in licensing fees are imposed in compliance with CHI statute and law No.2 year 2018 which stipulates the provision of optimum health insurance service to all citizens by means of securing adequate funding resources.
