Additional information about this Canadian Embassy in Egypt:
The Canadian Embassy in Egypt is also responsible for handling visa and immigration processes from surrounding countries including Egypt, Gaza (Palestinian Authority) and Sudan.

Canada and Egypt share many of their values, including interests in Middle East stability, peace, economic growth and governmental development. Three major cities in Canada (Vancouver, Montreal and Toronto) have very large Egyptian populations thanks to Canada being a popular destination for immigrants from Egypt.

Should You Contact a Lawyer First…?

It is important to remember that when applying for Canadian Immigration, you are required to submit your application to the Canadian Embassy of your nationality. However, there are some exceptions to this rule. You should always contact an immigration lawyer to assist you with the procedures associated with the Canadian Embassy of your region because the Canadian Embassy in Egypt may have its own set of special rules and procedures.

    Dear sir

    I am dr. Mahmoud N. M. Alsalehi from Gaza . I will join a fellowship training program in Toronto from July 1,2016 to June 30 , 2019. I applied on line for Temporary work permit VISA on Feb 20,2016 (UCI T118078547380 – application no. XY301926922). I have to give my fingerprints (Biometrics) in person in the nearest Biometrics collection point. I live in Gaza in which there are NO canadian embassies or VISA offices & All borders are closed including Rafah crossings . The deadline for Biometrics collection is March 22,2016. Till this moment, I failed to get a permission from the Israeli security officials to travel to Israel (Telaviv) where the nearest collection point is located, the arrangement with the Israeli security needs from 6-8 weeks . I am afraid that my application will be rejected If I do not provide my biometrics before March 22, 2016. our situation is so difficult in Gaza & we live in tight siege. can I have an extension in the time allowed for me to provide my biometrics as the usual arrangment pocess with the Israeli officials needs a long time (nearly 8 weeks) as I am a young man 34 years old.
    Please contact me as soon as possible.

      Good day Dr. Mahmoud. It is a very unfortunate situation that you are in. My understanding is the Biometrics are necessary and there is no exemption that will be given.
      Best Wishes, Vahe

      Hello Yusif,
      I am not able to tell you exactly what is going on with your visa application. Have you tried contacting the CIC to check the status of your application? They have a tool on their website that allows you to check the status of your applications. It is here:
