    Hello Ayman, welcome to BYC. I have no idea what the import regulations could be in your country, but chances are, it can be done. The USA seems to have the most stringent rules, but many countries are very lax. You should determine what the laws are before you order eggs. I only have experience shipping and recieving eggs from Belgium. To Belgium was a joke. It took over 3 weeks for the eggs to arrive and none hatched. It was determined that the eggs arrived in Belgium in 2 days and the remainder of the time was in Belgium. Eggs sent from my friend in Belgium took 3 days for the whole journey. Three out of twelve actually hatched, but none lived. If I remember correctly, the cost from my end was about $35 US for shipping. This was about 9 years ago and the world has changed a lot since then. I wish you luck and your English is fine...........Pop

    I would be concerned that the eggs wouldn't survive the shipping. I bought shipped eggs from just a few states away and they often arrive with broken yolks, no chance of hatching.

    That's what I suspect in my case, however, the faster they arrive, the better. I think the distance is less important than the ground time, because most of the time, air travel is quick. It seems the rough handling is the main problem............Pop

    You may have a better chance of the eggs surviving if you could get some from in-Euro. There are people on BYC who are from around the world, and getting some from closer by may be easier. However, like Lollipop said, handling once they get to your country may be a big enough hold up for the eggs to not be able to survive.
    Good luck, I hope you are able to find what you want.

    I think the rough handling is more the problem. It's almost impossible to pack eggs securely enough to survive rough handling........Pop

    If you get someone to use foam shipping inserts, that will give your eggs the best chance at surviving the journey.
