For those trying to get visas for Europe from Cairo, you better be planning your holiday somewhere in August or September, cos getting the visa is as herculean a task as deciding where to go and organising the trip. Er, let me correct that, it'll probably be easier to organise the holiday!!
Getting an appointment for the visa itself has a month long or more wait for most of the embassies, so plan in advance.. Since I am applying for Spain, this is the list of documents that the embassy asks for. Hope its of some help!
