The best thing to do if you're interested in applying for an American visa in Egypt is to have a look at the American Embassy and Consulate website.

Alternatively, you could contact either the embassy or consulate for specific assistance in your application.

A third idea would be to visit one of the 'American Centers' such as the one in Alexandria.

How to apply for a visa to the USA in Egypt

Essentially the process for applying for an American visa in Egypt is fairly straight-forward. You will need to do the following:

  • Download or apply for an application form
  • Arrange a visa application appointment with the American consulate
  • Provide documentation to support your application
At this point I should probably warn you that the Visa application process in Egypt is extremely slow due to the volume of applications that are processed each year.

The American visa application process

The first thing you will need to do is decide which type of visa you are applying for.

If you are only planning to stay in the United States for a short period of time, then a non-immigrant B-2 tourist visa is probably what you are after.

If you are looking to do trade and conduct business during your trip to the United States, then a B-1 business visa is what you'd be required to apply for.

There are also further criteria that you are usually required to meet when applying for an American visa from Egypt. These include:

  • Proving you have a residence outside the US which you are not abandoning
  • Providing evidence that your stay in the US is for a definitely temporary period of time (you may need to show evidence of a return flight being booked, for example)
  • You will need to prove that you will be leaving the US at the conclusion of your visit
  • You will have to show evidence that you have sufficient funds to support yourself during your stay in the US.
For more detailed information I suggest you check out the various sections on the American Embassy's website, which has a section dedicated to providing information for visa applicants.
