Is a Visa For France Mandatory For A Chinese Person?

In 2018, 876,559 visas were issued for France for Chinese nationals.

Whatever the reason for the visit, Chinese nationals wishing to travel to France must obtain a visa. However, there are two exceptions if they plan to visit Reunion Island or French Polynesia. 

The application for a visa to France for Chinese is made either at the consular services or at the company TLS Contact. All visas are now biometric.

In both cases, the procedures must be completed meticulously. The slightest error will result in the refusal or postponement of the visa, so it is advisable to request the assistance of MVF, whose experts are fully familiar with the procedures.
