Document for use in Egypt first needs to be legalised by way of FCDO Apostille and then submitted to the Consulate of Egypt for further attestation.
Educational documents must be attested by the ECEB before submitting them to the Consulate for further legalisation. The ECEB department can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org to request their attestation service directly.
Commercial documents which state ‘for use in Egypt’ (e.g. Powers of Attorney, Board Resolution, etc) may be required to get attestation by the Egyptian Chamber of Commerce before submitting to the Consulate.
The consular fee is £125 per commercial document (not stating ‘for use in Egypt) OR £183.80 per commercial document including the Egyptian Chamber of Commerce (for documents stating ‘for use in Egypt’) and £47 per private document.
For UK educational documents, the ECEB disbursement fee is £50 per document.
The consular processing time is likely to be 2-3 working days for submissions directly to the Consulate OR 5-6 working days for the legalisation of commercial documents via the Egyptian Chamber of Commerce.
For the attestation of UK educational documents by the ECEB, it may take between 15-25 working days due to ECEB verification of award with the UK issuing institution.
For the legalisation of UK educational documents, the Consulate require the attestation by the Egyptian Cultural and Educational Bureau (ECEB) before submitting to the consulate for further legalisation. This applies to any UK educational documents, including primary and secondary school levels (school letters, academic transcripts, etc).

For the legalisation of sales contracts, a copy of the document must be presented prior to application to enable the correct payable fee, as it may vary from the standard legalisation fees.
