Egyptian pounds back to Dollars

I've searched and couldn't find my answer. I was wondering if I will have any problems converting Egyptian pounds back into American dollars when my trip is over? Will those banks at the Cairo airport do that for me?

No problem at all to do that but if you will buy dollars, then they will give you 1 dollar = 5.57 LE

But if you sold dollars, they will do it 1dollar=5.55LE

Thats all

Mohamed is correct, you can simply buy back your dollars, and loose a little on the rate.

It is for sure possible to do this at the airport, but they are supposed to request an official exchange receipt to be shown.

I was in a hotel bank at the weekend, and the lady I was with exchanged Euros, the man told her that she could exchange them back again to Euros if she had too much.

Yes, you can change whatever money you have back into dollars without problems and I can even claim that you do not need to have a receipt indicating that you had got them from a bank. Though, keep it with you just in case. Some countries require it (I understand Egypt doesn't, but again just in case)
