Welcome to TLScontact

The Embassy of France in Indonesia authorizes TLScontact to inform and advise the public on the visa applications procedures, to receive the visa applications, collect the visas fees and return the passports to the applicants at the end of the process.

The applications received by TLScontact are transferred to the Embassy of France, which has the exclusive responsibility to instruct the applications and to decide to grant or deny a visa, or request additional information. TLScontact is therefore not involved in the decision step of the visa application, and is not aware of its outcome as passports are returned by the Embassy of France in sealed envelopes.

From the 1st of November 2015 onwards, by agreement with the Embassy of France in Indonesia, applicants for all visa types should apply at TLScontact except:

  • Applications for one of the African countries represented by France (Burkina Faso, Djibouti, Gabon, Mauritania, Central African Republic, Togo)* 
  • Adoption
  • Diplomatic passport

Embassy of France in Indonesia is only able to accept visa applications from residents in Indonesia (Article No. 2008-1176 of November 13, 2008). Visa applications from non-residents, including Indonesian nationals, who are settled in another country, can only be processed if applicants can prove that they have an urgent and unforeseen need to travel to France whilst visiting Indonesia and thus are unable to apply in their country of residence.

All the information regarding your visa application are now available on France visa website. After having obtained the necessary information to prepare your application on France visa you will need to go to to the TLScontact website in order to register your application online and make an appointment for the submission of  your visa application file and  the collect of your biometric data.

Considering the increasing amount of fake documents detected in application files, the French Embassy in Jakarta would like to inform all applicants that each application file containing fake documents will lead to a visa refusal and will be detrimental to any future Schengen visa applications.

Applicants are reminded that they are responsible of all documents that are submitted in their application file. Therefore, they must ensure the authenticity of each of the documents.

The TLScontact procedure is not compulsory; applicants can submit their applications to the Embassy of France in Indonesia by appointment only.
