The embassy of Egypt can help you with your online visa application, but a visit to the embassy is not compulsory, because the e-visa can be applied for entirely online. Only for a stay lasting longer than 30 days, or if you have a non-tourist travel purpose, will you need to make an appointment at the embassy of Egypt.

Embassy of Egypt

The Egypt embassy in the United Kingdom
The Egypt embassy is located in London. The embassy handles all consular affairs. Egypt also has a number of other buildings in London, including a Consulate General. To acquire a travel permit, you need to make an appointment at the embassy in London.

What can the embassy help you with?

The Egypt embassy has three primary tasks: supporting its people in the UK, improving diplomatic and trade relations, and issuing visas for Egypt.

Supporting Egyptians in the UK
Firstly, the embassy helps its own people; individuals with the Egyptian nationality that are currently living in the United Kingdom. For example, when their passport expires or with other problems. They also provide aid in case of emergency situations.

Improving relations with British organisations
Secondly, the Egypt embassy has the task of strengthening ties between the United Kingdom and Egypt. This concerns both political ties as well as business relations. The embassy can help British and Egyptian companies get in touch and engage in a comfortable collaboration, which is beneficial to both countries.

Issuing the Egypt visa
British citizens going to Egypt must possess a valid visa. The consular department of the Egyptian embassy is responsible for this. This does not always mean that you have to visit the embassy. In most cases, you can submit an application online. You will then receive your visa by email. You can easily check whether you can make use of the online application procedure by checking the page with the requirements for the visa.
