The 21st Session of the United Nations Conference on Climate Change will be held in Paris from November 30th to December 11th 2015. Attendees to this event, including those who have received an official accreditation, are invited to start the visa application procedure as soon as possible.

Travelers in possession of a valid Schengen visa will be able to travel into France without trouble between November 13th 2015 and December 13th 2015 unlike what was announced in Chinese media. They will simply have to present their travel document and Schengen visa at border control when entering France. There is no notable change compared to usual practice.

Recently, unauthorized websites have surfaced in China deceiving Chinese visa applicants. Some websites use the pinyin or part of TLScontact initials as website links without our authorization. The public is advised to seek visa information through official channels only, in order to avoid being misled. The appointment booking on the official website of French Visa Application Centers is FREE-OF-CHARGE. Click here for more details.

For any kind of violation by providing false information or fake signature on forms, all related applications will not be accepted and such behavior will be reported to the relevant Consulates for further investigation. Punishment might be inflicted to the representative or applicant concerned.

Schengen Visa

A Schengen visa is required when staying in the Schengen Area for up to 90 days.

A Schengen visa is granted in the form of a sticker affixed to the passport, travel document or other valid document that entitles the holder to cross the border between Schengen countries. Possession of a Schengen visa does not confer automatic right of entry. Entry will only be granted if the other conditions laid down by the Schengen Convention are met, i.e. the justification of the purpose and conditions of the trip, minimum amount of funds travelers must have at their disposal and the possession of valid travel insurance.

With a Schengen visa, you may enter one country and travel freely throughout the Schengen Area. It is issued to citizens of countries who are required to obtain a visa before entering the Schengen Area.

A Schengen visa allows the holder to travel freely within the Schengen Area for a maximum stay of up to 90 days in any 180 days period. If you wish to stay longer than 90 days you will need a national long stay visa or a residence permit.
