Visa Processing Time
The average short stay visa processing time is 3 to 5 working days, but may be longer according to individual cases and destinations. Shortened processing times will apply in the case of genuine emergencies. However, please note that the French Embassy can never guarantee same-day issuance of visas.
Visa applicants are strongly advised not to make non-refundable travel plans, as there is no guarantee that the visa application will be approved.
