Visa Requirements for the Indian Passport transitioning through France
Earlier France required you to apply for a transit visa even if you were just using one of the cities as a layover. That meant that even if you had an hour's layover, you needed to apply for a transit visa, as is the case in all Schengen countries in Europe. But now, France has wavered off the transit visa for it's country. This means that you can now travel via France to any further destination without applying for a transit visa. However, if you want to step out of the airport, you will need a visa. To know how to apply for that, read on.
Visa Requirements for the Indian Passport
France requires you to get a Valid Schengen Visa. You can apply for the Schengen visa within 3 months of your arrival date. It usually takes 7-10 days and 4-5 days if you’re lucky, for the visa to arrive so do a keep a few days of buffer in hand. You can directly apply to the French Embassy by filling an online application form or get it through a travel agency (We recommend Thomas Cook visa services for a hassle free & quick visa in case you need assistance; service fees would be approx. INR 2,500/- per passport). You’ll have to keep your return flight tickets, itinerary and accommodation details ready before you start the application. The visa fees per person is approx. 5,500 INR including VFS fees. You can apply for Schengen Visa here.
