- Posted in United Kingdom by Visa Bureauon 01 February 2011

The closures of the application centres in Cairo and Alexandra are to ensure the safety of customers and staff.

As some UK Visa applications submitted in Sudan and Yemen are processed in Cairo the situation has also impacted the visa services in those countries.

The UK Border Agency advise those applying in these countries to check the UK Embassy websites for alternative application arrangements and regular updates.

For further information and updates on the current situation in Egypt, customers should also visit the British Embassy Cairo website.
