The Immigration Office has reopened for business, but is operating on reduced hours. The immigration department, one of a number of government agencies that closed during the recent spate of violent conflicts in Cairo, is currently open until 12 p.m. each day. It is unknown when the office will return to normal working hours. BAL will continue to provide updates on the changing situation. Travel warnings issued by many countries remain in effect, and some nations have shuttered their foreign missions in Cairo until security is restored.

Clients are advised to avoid nonessential travel to Egypt and to expect delays in immigration processing.

This alert has been provided by the BAL Global Practice group and our network provider located in Egypt. For additional information, please contact
