In Egypt, there are approximately six million state employees, according to the Central Agency for Public Mobilisation and Statistics (CAPMAS).


Meeza is Egypt’s national payment system, which is part of the government’s strategy geared towards digital transformation and financial inclusion.


Meeza cards are issued in cooperation with the country’s banking system, including Banque Misr, the National Bank of Egypt, Housing and Development Bank, Arab African International Bank, Emirates NBD, Banque du Caire, Arab Banking Corporation, the United Bank, and the Commercial International Bank, in addition to Egypt’s Post Authority, Maait stated.


Problems tracked during the two pilot stages in 2020 have been solved to ensure the smooth transition from payroll to Meeza cards, said Dalia Fawzy, director of the electronic payment and collection unit at the finance ministry.
