British Embassy Cairo

Post by saraluxor » Thu Feb 25, 2016 7:34 am

Has anyone send and email to the British Embassy in Cairo or tried to call them? 3 days ago I sent an e mail to the consular section to the address given on their web page. I am still waiting for a reply. Also the phone has gone unanswered for the same period. Fortunately, it is not an urgent matter what what if it was? I have since been told that I need to make an appointment to speak to them. You do this online apparently. So...I need to make a long trip to Cairo on a cold filthy train or take an expensive flight and an overnight stay for a yes or no answer!!!!!!

I am sure the staff will have changed by now, but 3 years ago i emailed them over a few questions about marrying in Cairo, regarding the embassy bit and they emailed back about 2 days later on the first email, and about 6 hours later when i had to ask for further clarification.

Yes it was consular. I am sure the number and email carrie has just given you will be far more effective
