Welcome to TLScontact Vietnam


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

This outsourcing ensures a better reception to the public, in a dedicated center and in a timely manner.

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.

Please note that the visa application processing times is 15 days, Visa applications processing times may take longer depending on the volume of visa applications received.
Appointments are available on the next working day.

Long Stay visas: the visa application processing could last from 10 days up to 2 months. we advise you to apply at least 1 month prior to your expected departure date.

The Embassy of France in Vietnam is responsible for issuing short stay visas in representation of Estonia and Malta.

TLScontact is pleased to offer several Added Value Services in the Visa Application Center. For more details please click here.
