IMPORTANT VISA INFORMATION FOR France

  • All Indian passport holders require a valid visa to enter France.
  • Each applicant must have all the mandatory documents as mentioned in requirement tabs below
  • In addition to the documents mentioned, our visa experts or the concerned embassy may require you to furnish additional documents to process your visa.Your cooperation in furnishing any such additional documents is essential for a positive outcome.
  • If all the documents are not ready at the time of agent visit then additional charges levied when agent visits your residence again
  • Fee may vary for country if rate of the embassy fluctuate.
  • FAQ's

    You will need to contact the prefecture of your place of residence. If you are outside France, you will need to contact your home country’s consular services to arrange this.

    If you have to transit through France on the way to another Schengen country, you must have an entry visa and a short-stay visa for the Schengen area (unless exempted from the same). If you are transiting through France on your way to a country that is located outside the Schengen area, you do not need an airport transit visa. This also depends on your nationality – if you are Indian and you do not intend to leave the airport premises for your entire transit stay, you do not need an ATV (Airport Transit Visa).

    Other than your passport (which is mandatory), you also need to carry your supporting documents to prove your purpose of stay. These will be the same as the ones you submitted to obtain your visa. You will need to show proof of funds, as well as a return ticket. A health insurance certificate is also necessary.

    Having a visa in your passport doesn’t necessarily guarantee that you will be authorised to enter the Schengen area. This decision is based on the border police, who may refuse your entry if you do not carry all the supporting documents necessary.

    You will have to fill out a new form – you do not have to delete/create a new account; however, you must remember to print the correct version of your form to add to the rest of your required documents.

    The picture has to be recent and conform to reality. The photo size must be 35 mm wide and 45 mm high. The size of the face in this photo should be 32 to 36 mm (=70 to 80% of the picture). The face captured must be from chin to forehead (excluding your hair).

    You will have to submit it to the French Embassy closest to you, in your home country – the country where you legally reside. If you are going through your visa process with Visa2Fly, you can rest assured that we will handle this step for you. If you are in a different country that the one which you legally reside in, and you can explain why your application cannot be submitted in the country of your legal/passport residence, your application may still be accepted.

    As of currently, there is no France visa on arrival for Indians. All Schengen states require Indian nationals to have a visa before entering.

    No, you cannot. If you have to apply for a French student visa, you need to be 18 years or older, as of the year of application.

    Firstly, if you are a parent and want to visit your children in France, the ‘parent visa’ is essentially just a normal visitor visa. According to the provisions of French and European law, decisions about refusing visas to France are justified. You can try to apply again.

    You can reply to invitations and requests from your partners in France. If you want to attend/participate in trade fairs, seminars or conferences (that are related to your professional field of work), you can do this as well. You cannot engage in any paid or unpaid work whilst on this visa – you need a France working visa for this. You can stay in France for a maximum of 90 days on this visa.

    No, they are not. All fees paid towards obtaining any Schengen visa are mandatory and non- refundable.

    You will need to use the passport that you plan to travel with. When you fill in the application form, you should indicate your original nationality, along with your current nationality (i.e. that shown on your passport).
