Do you need a visa ?
A visa authorizes you to enter French territory. This document is issued by the French consular authorities in the foreign national’s country of residence in the form of a sticker affixed to a passport. It authorizes the holder to enter French territory, travel within the Schengen Area and stay in France for a specified period. There are several categories of visa.
