Shafiq, who has been living abroad in the United Arab Emirates since narrowly losing the first post-Mubarak elections to Islamist incumbent Mohamed Morsi in June, has been barred from travel using his Egyptian passport since last month.
He faces corruption charges in a case connected to that of Mubarak's long untouchable sons Alaa and Gamal.
