Temporary closure of the visa office in Cairo
Please note that for security reasons the office in Cairo is temporarily closed until further notice. CIC continues to monitor developments closely.
Temporary visa applications (visitors, students and workers) can be submitted online.
Applicants can also submit their documents and fees to Visa application centres (VACs) in Cairo. VACs improve service by helping clients avoid unnecessary delays due to incomplete applications, and by facilitating the reliable and secure transfer of documents between clients and visa offices.
