British Embassy in Cairo is introducing an important change to how we deliver some of our consular services.

This was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government


From 1 December 2013 we are launching an online appointment system. The new system will result in a more efficient and customer friendly service with shorter queuing time and a quicker service.

If you need any of our Notarial and Documentary Services, e.g. Administering an Oath or an Affirmation, Witnessing signatures on Power of Attorney, Statutory Declarations, Certifying Copies of passports, Registering a Birth or Death, Issuing a Marriage Declaration; then you will need to book an appointment online, selecting the service that you require and the time you want to come to the Embassy. We aim to deliver your service within 20 minutes.

For information on how to book an appointment and to learn more about the services we provide, visit our website.

If you however need emergency assistance then you may approach the Embassy anytime between 10:00 hrs to 13:00 hrs Sunday to Thursday, or call +202 2791 6000 day or night.
