Digitization

As of April 7, 2021, France-Visas will provide students with the possibility of sending digital copies of their supporting documents when completing their visa application online. This optional procedure will allow an accelerated process by the external service provider (ESP). This feature will at first be accessible only to applicants for long-stay student visas residing in a country where the visa application is outsourced to an ESP and available online.

The prerequisites for the digitization procedure are detailed here.

 

Issuance of visas

Issuance of visas will gradually resume in the coming weeks. The practical arrangements will be set out by diplomatic and consular posts, taking into account the local context. This gradual resumption is subject to any new conditions and health rules for entry to French national territory, information on which will be provided when the time comes.
