Service Standard

The Consulate General of France in London endeavors to shorten the time to obtain an appointment at TLScontact visa center. The appointment is available within 48 hours (working days), but it may take longer during the high season.

Once visa applications have been transferred to the consular authority, the processing time is from 2 working days up to 15 working days. This instruction delay is given as general guidelines and will vary according to different factors.
