Similarly, no justification of the reason for a trip from France, in metropolitan France or overseas, nor any certificate of exit from the territory is required by the French authorities to travel to another country.

All categories of short or long stay visa applications are now admissible (tourism, private visit, business, employment, studies, private family life .....) without restriction.
