France has launched a new service to facilitate international visa applications. The new online visa application service is currently being tested in South Africa, Senegal and Tunisia.
For more information or to register for visa application documents, travellers should log on to France-Visas, the official website for visas for France. Application forms can be submitted and tracked via the new page.
France-Visas is the sole portal providing all necessary information to guide travellers through their visa application, and to assist at each stage of the process (file preparation, submission, and follow-up of your application).
Once South African travellers have completed the registration process on France-Visas online, they will be redirected to the CAPAGO website to make an appointment for the submission of their visa application and the collection of biometric data. Passports can continue to be dropped off and collected at the CAPAGO offices.
