Outsourcing of visa application services

The Norwegian Embassy in Cairo has outsourced the reception of Schengen C – visa (visit visa) and residence permit applications to VFS.

Applicants may now submit their applications at VFS’ visa application center in Cairo located in: 44, Office #G, Second Floor, Giza Street, Giza Cairo, Egypt.

All applications will still have to be registered and paid online at the Application Portal Norway,, before visiting the visa application center.

The visa application centre accepts applications without prior appointment from 8.30 to 12.30 Monday to Thursday, except bank holidays, until the daily quota is filled up.

The service fees of VFS global must be paid in cash – in Egyptian pounds - at the visa application centre and are non-refundable. The fee is equivalent of 28.25 EUR, approximately: EGP 587.

VFS will perform non-judgemental tasks - accepting applications and supporting documents for visas and residence permits, and perform the biometrics on behalf of the Embassy and returning the travel documents.

VFS will also answer general queries about visas, residence permits and application procedures. More information can be found on VFS’s website for Norway in Egypt.
