Visa section: reminder
Due to an important activity, Visa section is issuing this reminder:
There is no hotline for the Visa section. All requests have to be sent to the following address: email@example.com. However, please note that no response will be given to questions regarding:
• Appointment requests
• General enquiries about visa
• Progress of a visa applic ation lodged less than 4 week ago
• Information about visa procedure or type of documents to provide
All the relevant information on these matters can be found on France Visas’ website: https://france-visas.gouv.fr/en_US/web/france-visas/welcome-page.
Waiting times for appointments and for processing applications will vary depending on your nationality and the time of year. Timeslots on the appointment application (France visas) are available two months in advance: each day, new appointments are available from 10.00 am. Also, appointments could become available every day in the event of a cancellation. So, please check the appointment system regularly in order to find a suitable date.
For instance, applications for visa - cruises to New Caledonia and French Polynesia may take up to 4 weeks.
Users are therefore asked to submit their visa applications well in advance of their departure date.
