Welcome to France-Visas - The official website for visa application to France

Information / Resumption of visa issuance

France’s diplomatic and consular posts are once again issuing visas, so it is now possible to apply online via the France-Visas portal.

All diplomatic and consular posts will process study visas as best they can in light of the health conditions. In countries where restrictions on external borders have been lifted (Australia, Canada, Georgia, Japan, Morocco, New Zealand, Rwanda, South Korea, Thailand, Tunisia and Uruguay), the following additional categories will be prioritized (with possible local variations based on current capabilities at the posts) :

  • Professional grounds for settlement in France
  • Family grounds for expatriation to France
  • Holders of a residence document (residence permit or long-stay visa serving as a residence permit (VLS-TS)) expiring after 15 June.

There will be a particular focus on the reception conditions for visa applicants from a health perspective.

Additional information will be provided to users by the relevant posts and contractors in countries where the reception of applications has been outsourced.
