Special procedures

The Australian Embassy will send all postal correspondence by registered post within Egypt.

If you intend to send an application or any documents to the Embassy from outside Egypt (including from Australia), you should engage the services of an internationally reputable courier company which will guarantee a door-to-door service. You should ensure that any courier you use has an office in Egypt and will undertake action on your behalf in relation to customs clearance.

Your courier service is then responsible for ensuring that the package is delivered to the Embassy. The Australian Embassy in Cairo cannot provide you with any assistance in clearing any item through Egyptian Customs, even if you have used an international courier as recommended. ​
