Visa for medical care
► Your situation
You need to consult a doctor or specialised clinic, receive treatment in a hospital or receive aftercare.
► Your visa
The visa issued to you for medical care reasons is a short-stay visa and does not exclude a private stay or tourism. The cost of any medical care you receive in France will not be covered by the French health insurance system.
► Your supporting documentation
In addition to the general documentation usually required for any short-stay visa, you will also be asked to provide specific supporting documentation. It will be examined in strict respect of medical confidentiality.
