Due to the current anti-COVID-19 measures taken by the authorities in Egypt, we can currently only accept visa and travel document applications in case of emergencies. For Schengen visa applications, this means that we only accept applications from family members of Dutch citizens, from people with a demonstrably essential profession, approved student’s long stay visas or humanitarian applications. More information about the exception categories can be found on the following link: Short-stay Schengen visas. For applications for travel documents, this means that we only accept applications for absolutely essential travel, or if you need the travel document to extend your local residence status. Other consular services have also been suspended. The situation may change quickly, and we will keep you informed. If you think you qualify for an exemption category or if you need more information, please contact the diplomatic mission at the following e-mail address: kai-ca@minbuza.nl .
