UK visa application centres re-open in Cairo and Alexandria

The UK visa application centres in Cairo and Alexandria have now re-opened.

The only service that is not currently available is the priority visa service.

The UKBA said they aim to make decisions on most non-settlement visa applications within their global customer service standards of three weeks, and most settlement applications within 12 weeks.

Applications for visit visas and European Economic Area (EEA) family permits can also be made in any country where there are UK visa application centres.

Customers will need to be in the third country or territory in accordance with that country or territory's immigration laws. Applications for all other types of entry clearance, should be made in the applicant's country of residence.
