Important information!



The Embassy of Sweden in Cairo has received information about individuals and companies claiming to represent Sweden and offering their services for facilitating and preparing visa applications. The agents are claiming that they can influence outcome in the cases and request large payments for their services. Do not use those services or make any payments, since this is an illegal activity and all the doctored applications will be refused.


The Embassy of Sweden is represented solely by VFS Global with offices in Giza and Alexandria:


Officers at VFS Global cannot influence the outcome in individual visa cases. All the decisions are made at the embassy in Cairo by an authorized migration officer.


If you suspect that a crime or irregularities have occurred in connection with Swedish Foreign Service activities, please report to the embassy: or to MFA Head of Compliance:

All the reported cases will be investigated.
