    Getting a visa

    All foreign nationals wanting to come to France must be able to submit statutory documentary evidence at the border for the reasons for their stay, their means of support and accommodation arrangements.
    As a rule, unless you are exempt, you are required to have a visa. It must be applied for from the relevant French embassy or consulate in the applicant’s country of residence.
    For further information, please consult the French Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs website.


    As of May/June 2017, when registering online and upon request, Ideobain can send you a letter of invitation, to be presented at the French embassy or consulate in your country. Note that they are the sole bodies with the authority to grant a visa and your sole contact in the event of any queries.
