    You can take most anything in, but u must declare if you are taking things to sell. If your bags are searched and they find say more than one laptop or cell phone, you may have to pay the ‘tax’ on it. Also u can take prescription meds, but they should be in the original bottle with your full name on it etc…U arent supposed to take more than a 30 day supply. There are more detailed limits too. I took vitamis once and i was only allowed to have 12 bottles. (i take them for my wifes clinic so i tried to take more) No pornography…..basciallly be prepared to pay a High tax on anything you take that is not for personal use…..as far as taking out, you cant take antiquities without government authorization etc….no more than 5000 le egyptian pounds i beleive….some things u can take out, but arent technically legal to bring to the USA, sheesha pipes are not allowed to be brought in, though i see people do it all the time…..hope this answers most of your question
