The type of visa required depends both on the duration and purpose of your stay in France:
Stay not exceeding 3 months:
- Your situation
You want to visit France for under 3 months for tourism reasons without engaging in any professional activity during your stay.
- Your visa
After checking whether your nationality requires a visa, you must then apply for a short-stay visa (uniform Schengen visa or national visa depending on your destination i.e. in France’s European or non-European territory).
- Your supporting documentation
This will be indicated in the visa wizard and will depend on your country of residence and on your nationality. The purpose is to check whether you have financial resources (cash, travellers’ cheques, international bank cards, etc.) sufficient for the duration of your planned stay and your return to your country of origin.
