France Visa Faqs

  • What is France Schengen visa?

The France Schengen visa is a special type of visa that permits travel among all Schengen countries, including France, for up to 90 days. This visa allows travelers to explore France and any of the other 25 Schengen countries with just one visa, making it a dream come true for travelers.

  • The Schengen Visa is valid for which countries?

A Schengen Visa, issued by a consulate or embassy of a Schengen State, is valid for travel to all 26 countries within the Schengen Area, including the European territory of France, unless otherwise specified on the visa sticker. Therefore, you do not need an additional visa to enter or stay in France. However, you must have documentary evidence to justify the reasons for your stay and your means of support. The Schengen Area includes the following countries: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland.

  • Is my France Schengen Visa application for only France?

No, the embassy/consulate issues a visa not only for France but for the entire Schengen Area, allowing the visa holder to visit any of the 26 member countries under the Schengen Agreement.

  • How long can I stay in the Schengen area on the basis of my visa?

The Schengen Visa is a short-stay visa in the form of a sticker affixed to your passport. A “short stay” is defined as “90 days within any 180-day period,” meaning you can stay for a maximum of 90 days within any 180-day timeframe. The exact length of your Schengen Visa’s validity is specified on the visa sticker under “Duration of visit.” A single-entry visa allows you to enter the Schengen Area only once, indicated by “1” under “Number of entries” on the visa sticker. A two-entry or multiple-entry visa permits two or multiple entries during the visa’s validity, indicated by “02” or “MULT” under “Number of entries.”

  • Can I reapply for a Schengen Visa if my previous application was refused?

Yes, you are free to reapply for a Schengen Visa if your previous application was refused.

  • What is a Schengen Visa cover letter?

A Schengen Visa cover letter summarizes your intention to travel to a country within the Schengen Area. In this letter, you should include:

  • The purpose of your trip
  • Dates and destinations of your travel
  • How your trip will be financed
  • Day-by-day itinerary of your journey
  • Duration of your stay
  • Can I extend my Schengen Visa while in France as a short-stay visa holder?

No, you cannot extend your short-stay visa while in France, except in special circumstances. Exceeding the permitted period of stay is considered illegal. Instead, you must return to your home country within the allowed timeframe and apply for another France Visa if needed.

  • When should I apply for a Schengen Visa before my intended visit?

You can submit your Schengen visa application up to 90 days before your departure date. It’s advisable to apply at least 20 working days before your planned departure, as certain travel purposes may require longer processing times. Typically, Schengen Visa applications are processed within 5-15 working days from your appointment date.

  • How long does it take to obtain an France Visa?

Generally, an France Visa (Schengen Visa) takes between 5 to 15 days to process at the France Embassy/Consulate. The processing time for an France Visa may vary based on multiple factors and is subject to change without prior notice at the consulate’s discretion.

  • Is it mandatory for me to take an appointment for an France Visa application?

Yes, scheduling an appointment is necessary for applying for an France Visa to complete biometric registration and submit your visa documents.

  • Why is personal appearance mandatory for France Visa?

Since November 2nd, 2015, with the implementation of the Visa Information System (VIS), all Schengen visa applicants in India must appear in person to provide biometric data, including fingerprints and digital photography. The photograph can either be taken digitally during the application process or scanned from an existing one. For subsequent applications within 5 years, fingerprints can be reused from the previous VIS application file. If there is doubt about the applicant’s identity, the consulate may collect fingerprints again within this 5-year period. Additionally, applicants can request new fingerprint collection if it cannot be immediately confirmed that fingerprints were collected within the specified period.

  • Do I need to have purchase travel insurance?

Yes, you must have purchased travel insurance. Applicants must demonstrate that they possess sufficient and valid travel insurance to cover expenses related to repatriation for medical reasons, urgent medical treatment, emergency hospitalization, or death during their stay(s) in the Schengen Member States. The insurance must be valid across all Member States and cover the entire duration of the person’s planned stay or transit. The minimum coverage required is EUR 30,000.
