Schengen visas for France [fr]

The Embassy of France to the Republic of South Africa and French Consulates in Johannesburg and Cape Town categorically deny the information published on the web according to which France has stopped issuing Schengen visas in order to replace them by national visas.This information is false and totally unfounded. Holders of valid Schengen visas can still enter France.

The French Consulates in South Africa and their external service provider, Capago, still process Schengen visa applications, in particular from South African citizens, within a time frame of 48 hours as instructed by the French authorities. The possible inconveniences visitors travelling to France could face are the enhanced security measures implemented at the borders.
