Getting a Visa for France : Short Stay

The “Schengen uniform” short-stay visa allows you to come to France and stay for 90 days over a period of 180 days. The sticker affixed to your passport specifies the territories where you are authorised to stay. This type of visa is valid for a single entry or several entries.

The short-stay visa is issued for various reasons:

Getting A Visa For France : Long Stay

The long-stay visa is for a period of more than 90 days and its validity may not exceed one year. Beyond that, you must apply for a “titre de séjour” (residence permit) at the prefecture. 

The long-stay visa is issued in the following cases:

There are three types of long-stay visas :

1 - The Long Stay Visa, equivalent to a Residence Permit

With this type of visa, you do not need to apply for a residence permit, but you must register with the nearest territorial office of the OFII – Office Français de l’Immigration et de l’Intégration – as soon as you arrive.

2 - The Temporary Long Stay Visa

The VLS-T visa is for people who are sure that their stay will not exceed one year.

3 - The Long Stay Visa bearing the mention " Carte De Séjour À Solliciter Dans Les 2 Mois Suivant L'arrivée " ("Long Stay Card To Be Requested Within 2 Months of Arrival").

You therefore have two months to obtain your residence permit. It can be for several years.
