Despite the absence of a land border with Syria, The Arab Republic of Egypt (“Egypt”) has generously accepted Syrian refugees into Egypt. While the country is hosting far smaller numbers of Syrian refugees in comparison to Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey and Iraq, as of September 2015, there are 128,019 Syrian asylum-seekers and refugees (including 55,816 children) registered with UNHCR in Egypt. According to Government estimates, an equal number or more Syrians are unregistered and living in Egypt.
