Dear Applicants,

Please note that visa processing time during the high season will be on average 5 weeks. Applicants are therefore advised to make use of the option to keep their passports after they have submitted their application at TLScontact. During the high season this will not require any additional documents and the costs for this additional service are 94 EGP. You should submit your passport not later than 5 weeks after your initial application to eventually obtain the visa.

Please inform the agent at the welcome or documentation desk if you would like to make use of this service.

Obtaining your passport from the embassy during the visa processing time is not possible.

Visa Application Fees

To submit your visa application, you will have to pay a visa fee and a service fee. The visa fee is collected on behalf of the Embassy of Germany in Cairo and the service fee is collected for the processing of your visa application at the TLScontact center.

Attention: payment of the visa fee and service fee do not give any guarantee or right that a visa will be granted. The visa fee and service fee are both non-refundable and non-transferable if the visa application is denied by Consular staff or if the applicant decides to terminate his or her application.

This amount has been decided in agreement with the German Embassy in Cairo  and corresponds to the different services provided by the TLScontact center (i.e. visa application reception, data processing, information collection, appointments booking, etc.).
