VISAS - PEAK SEASON ANNOUNCEMENT
During the peak season (April to July) the visa section of the Consulate General of France is processing thousands of visa applications, in this context we would like to remind applicants of the following points:
For short-stay visa applications, please submit your application at least 15 days before your planned departure date;
For long-stay visa applications, please allow at least 30 days between the date of submission of your application and your planned departure date.
Should your visa application be incomplete, i.e. missing documents from the France-Visas portal supporting documents list :
1/ you may choose not to submit your application until you have all the required documents and come back to the Capago centre at a later date to lodge a complete file ;
2/ however, if you do decide to submit an incomplete application, you will be asked to sign a document indicating that your application is incomplete ; in addition you will be informed by Capago that submitting an incomplete application extends the processing time and does not guarantee that the visa section will issue you with a visa.
