It's not listed by EORC or AERC.

PS. Jiguet et al 2010. First report of the Egyptian Ornithological Rarities Committee.
The following records have been considered as not proven by the committee. As a consequence, the following species are not considered to have occurred in Egypt.

Wire-tailed Swallow Hirundo smithii, Wadi Hagul, 1 ind., 30 March 1995. Several key features are not described (e.g. the dark ventral bar) and the description and drawing of the tail pattern is not appropriate for that species.
