Business Support Services
Last updated on August 18, 2020
The Business Support Office is shaped by AUC’s commitment to fulfill its obligations and responsibilities towards its students, faculty and staff members and various academic departments to advance learning through supporting the teaching and research process.
To inform all re-located faculty and international students with governmental regulations related to student visa, work permit, residency in Egypt and process their issuing and renewals.
The Travel Office was established to help faculty and staff members, administrators and students with their travel plans. It handles business and personal trips, in Egypt or abroad through our corporate deals with excellent hotels, and monitors policies set by the administration for these types of travel. The office also arranges meet-and-assist services through customs and immigration arranged at the airport in accordance with the guidelines governing the provisions of such services. (Services are available upon request for non-Egyptians only).
