Due to the procedure necessary for biometric visa, all visa applicants have to appear for appointments in person.
Applicants for short or long stay visas for France, regardless of their residence address in the Republic of South Africa, may lodge their application in any of the three CAPAGO’s premises (the company in charge of data collection) which are located in Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town.
Visas will then be processed and issued by one of the two French Consulates in Johannesburg or Cape Town.
