Apply for a visa to visit France in Suva

Visa applications submitted by residents of Fiji have to be lodged at the VFS Global/TT Services visa centre, by appointment only.

Applications are processed by the French embassy in Singapore. The decision to issue or refuse a visa is made by the Consular section of the French Embassy only.

  • For short stay visa applications, you must lodge your application 15 days minimum before the scheduled date of departure.
  • For long stay visa applications, you must lodge your application 1 month minimum before the scheduled date of departure.

The French Embassy in Singapore also issues short stay visas on behalf of Belgium, Lithuania and Portugal.

The processing time is given as general guidelines, and may vary according to different factors. It can be brought to up to 60 calendar days, upon written notification from the consular authority.
