According to Al Jazeera's Web site, the government also plans to shutter its Cairo bureau.
That came as protesters continued to call for the exit of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.
Al Jazeera vowed to cover the story regardless, and at press time midday Sunday continued to stream live from Cairo.
"Al Jazeera assures its audiences in Egypt and across the world that it will continue its in-depth and comprehensive reporting on the events unfolding in Egypt."
Al Jazeera journalist Ahmad Mansour was detained briefly last week and other journalists for the broadcaster prevented from entering the country.
