Becoming a Member of the Egypt Branch

Whether you are just starting out, looking to enhance your career, or wanting to demonstrate a commitment to exceptionally high standards in private dispute resolution, CIArb membership will support you every step of the way.

The Egypt Branch covers the following areas: Egypt, Libya, Palestine, Sudan and Syria.

Membership Criteria

Membership of the Egypt Branch shall comprise those members of the Institute whose billing address, as shown on the member's profile and recorded in the central membership database, is within the Branch area.

In addition, a member may be affiliated (at no cost to the member) to one or more Branches other than the Branch in which he/she is located, as above, if he/she so wishes. In this event the member should apply to the Branch of his/her choice for affiliation. Affiliation to a Branch entitles the member to attend all Branch meetings.

We will tell you what member type you qualify for when completing the registration form and submitting the membership fee.
