Nonimmigrant Visas

General Information and How to Apply

Welcome to the Non-Immigrant Visa Section of the U.S. Embassy in Cairo. This Section provides visa services to Egyptians and citizens of other countries who reside in Egypt and are willing to enter temporarily the United States. Visitors may travel to the United States for business or pleasure. We process non-immigrant visas for many different purposes, including but not limited to students, temporary workers, journalists, and religious leaders. If your purpose of travel is other than business or pleasure, you will need to apply for a visa in the appropriate category.
