Egypt - France

Working hours during Ramadan will be from 8:30 till 3:00 pm.

TLScontact hereby informs you that our center provides a complete service for the submission of visa applications, including assistance in completing the forms. Appointments must be taken through our center where the documentation will be checked on behalf of the consulate. It's recommended to submit the application without the interference of third parties, as such mediation can have a negative impact on the outcome of the visa. Anyone claiming to facilitate granting the visa through alleged connections with TLS or the consulate is lying and committing a fraud.
