Visa Application Fees
1. Visa fees
To apply for a visa, you will have to pay a visa fee and a service fee. The visa fee is collected for the Consulate General of France in Cairo and the service fee is collected for the processing of your visa application at TLScontact.
Attention: Payment of the visa fee and the service fee does not guarantee that a visa will be granted. The visa fee and the service fee are both non-refundable and non-transferable if the visa application is denied by the administration or if the applicant decides to terminate his or her application.
