The main steps in applying for a visa

Do I need a visa ?

PNG First, use “Visa wizard” to check, based on your situation, whether you need a visa and if so, what type. The wizard will also tell you what documents must be enclosed with your application, along with the relevant fee.

Complete your application online

PNG Once you have confirmed that you need a visa, you can complete your application on our online portal. You will be asked to create a France-Visas account, which you will need for each step of the process.

Submit your application to the visa centre

PNG Once you have completed your online application, all you have to do is submit it to your local visa centre. France-Visas will provide you with all necessary information on how and where to submit your application.

Important :
Out of respect for other visa applicants, if you cannot keep your appointment, you must cancel it online by yourself, at the latest the day before your appointment. If you fail to do so, the appointment cannot be redistributed to another applicant on time.
1 passport = 1 appointment.
Warning : The visa section will delete double appointments without notice.

Track your visa application

PNGOnce your application has been submitted, track its progress and see how and when you can collect your passport and how to prepare for your trip to France.


Waiting times for appointments and for processing applications will vary depending on your nationality and the time of year.

Users are therefore asked to submit their visa applications well in advance of their departure date.
