French Embassy takes up new measures to ease visa issuance for Indians

french Embassy
The French Embassy has decided to implement new measures by which Indians will be able to avail French visas easily.

According to the new measures, there is no necessity of any prior appointment for the travel agencies to submit the applications of the individual travelers at the embassy. They can submit the applications directly at the French Embassy. However, when the applications are in a group of more than 10, the travel agencies have been asked to approach VFS Global beforehand and prior to the scheduled date of departure so that VFS Global would advise them on the submission of the files in a group and the required documents, according to a release.

The French Consulate can return the passports free of cost on an emergency request from an applicant during the time of application processing, if the applications are submitted several weeks prior to the scheduled departure date of the applicant.

French consular services in India will try to accelerate the processing of the French visa applications depending on the order of priority. Applicants in the age group of 6 to 18 years do not have to pay any visa fee.

French Ambassador to India, Francois Richier said that more number of visa application centres will be opened all over India in association with VFS Global. In the previous year, the Embassy had temporarily prevented biometrics for independent travellers applying for French visas. Since then, there had been no necessity to visit the French Consulate until and unless called particularly for an interview.

France receives around 300,000 visitors from India each year and there has been an increase in this number at a steady rate during the previous few years.
