In the event that you lose your passport while in the country, it’s important to report the loss to the Egyptian police in order to obtain a case number. The police will issue a letter which you will need to take to the British Embassy to either obtain a temporary passport or apply for a new one while still in the country. Additionally see the track passport application on here as well. With a temporary passport, you can leave the country, but if you reside in Egypt, you will need to wait for a new passport. Likewise see the page on renew British passport online.  Ensure that the old Egyptian visa is transferred to the new passport. It’s possible to apply for a new passport online, but a police report is still required. Furthermore, if you have the tracking number, you can track the progress of your passport online. You can also check passport renewal status online.

Additionally if you’re planning to get married, you’ll need to acquire a letter from the Embassy in Egypt to confirm your single status. This process takes several days and requires that you have your original documents, including your divorce decree or the death certificate of your previous spouse. After verification by the Egyptian government and translation and certification, you can now register your marriage in Egypt using these documents. Additionally see the UK marriage visa.
