Moreover it is also possible to inquire about the tax figure at the location, and eliminate the risk of carrying around large sums of money.

As for the tariff payment service, Banque Misr had been the first to provide this service electronically since December 2005. Clients can inquire about tariff charges incurred upon them personally or upon their institutions and then make the payments through the bank’s branches that provide the service, and have it instantly reflected on their tariff information
