Situation of Palestinian Refugees in Egypt Exacerbated by Exorbitant Education Fees

The Egyptian Ministry of Education has imposed exorbitant coasts for public school enrollment for migrant students, including Palestinian refugees from Syria, who are considered as foreigners rather than asylum-seekers.

Article 5 of the new decision sets a sum of 3,000 EGP per year (nearly 200 USD) for public school enrollment.

The Egyptian authorities continue to categorize the Palestinians of Syria as “tourists” and, thus, denying them the right to an unequivocal legal status. Refugees have been shorn of the right to legal stays in the country.

A number of Palestinian refugees from Syria said they have failed to enroll their children at government-run schools. The fact that UNRWA has not opened up schools for Palestinian refugees in Egypt has added bad to worse.

Unofficial data estimates that 3,000 Palestinian refugees from Syria have sought asylum in Egypt, 500 among whom illegally entered the country through the Sudanese borders.
