Practical informations

When coming to the visa section to submit your application, do not forget :

  • Your passport ;
  • Your documents presented in order according to the list of requirements ;
  • Your application and service fees.

NB: If your visa application is incomplete (i.e. missing documents), you may choose not to submit your application until you have all the required documents and come back at a later date. However, if you do decide to submit your incomplete application, you will be asked to sign a document indicating that your application is incomplete and that certain documents are missing.

Submitting a complete application does not guarantee that the consular authorities will grant you a visa.

Biometric data

All visas issued by France are biometric visas.
Applicants who are over 12 years of age are required to appear in person at the time of their first application. The following biometric identifiers are collected: a photograph, scanned or taken at the time of the application, and 10 fingerprints, taken flat and digitized.

However, it is possible to retrieve your biometric data if a previous biometric Schengen visa has been issued to you less than 59 months ago.

Children under 12 years of age: children under 12 years of age are not required to provide the biometric data, short stay Schengen visa application may be submitted by the child’s parent/legal guardian. The ISO/IEC format photograph (pdf)  of the child will be scanned.
