Addon Details
France EU / EEA and Swiss National Family Member Visa £195.00


In order to be eligible to submit a Schengen visa application, customers must meet the following criteria:

  1. Hold a valid passport or travel document.
  2. Hold a valid UK residence permit. If the applicant holds a short stay visa for the UK (C type visa), they must apply for a Schengen visa from their country of residence. However, if there is a valid reason for not applying in their residence country (e.g., no French mission or an urgent situation arises during their stay in the UK, such as a new business trip or serious illness of a relative in France), they may apply at any French mission outside their residence country. Please note that written confirmation from a doctor or hospital in France is required in the case of a serious illness.
  3. Apply for a short stay visa for purposes such as tourism, visiting family and friends, attending conferences (including minors), business, or as an EEA/EU family member.


Customers who have not yet reached the age of 18 when submitting a Schengen visa application (EEA/EU family member) should take note of the following information.

In accordance with European legislation aimed at safeguarding the welfare of children, it is crucial to emphasize that minors who fail to provide all the necessary documents may not be granted a Schengen visa.

Processing time

Customers are advised to submit their Schengen visa applications up to six months before their intended travel date to the Schengen Area.

Please take note of the following:

The processing time for applications starts only upon the Embassy receiving the required documents.

To ensure a smooth process, applications must be submitted at least 15 calendar days before the intended travel date (as mentioned above) and can be submitted up to six months in advance. Failure to adhere to these deadlines may result in the Embassy deeming your application inadmissible.
