Estonia’s first embassy in Africa is in Cairo

As of the beginning of September, the Estonian Embassy in Cairo will begin accepting applications for visas to travel to Estonia.

Foreign Minister Urmas Paet emphasised that the embassy opened in Cairo this year is Estonia’s first embassy in Africa. “Cairo is one of the biggest centres of not only the Arab world, but of all Africa. The Estonian Embassy being active in Cairo provides a basis for intensifying ties with the region as well as for the development of business and cultural contacts,” he said. “Since Egypt is one of the most popular tourist destinations for Estonians, the existence of the embassy is also important for helping out our citizens in Egypt,” Paet added.

Previously Estonia was represented by the Latvian Embassy in Cairo for the issuing of Schengen visas in Egypt.
