    Benefits of outsourcing with a service provider

    Outsourcing aims to ensure good facilities for the visa applicants in a sole and dedicated centre within a full respect of confidentiality and by providing a quality of care.

    Processing time

    Although the average processing time is usually much faster than the statutory period of 15 days, for your comfort and your convenience, we suggest that you submit your short stay visa application at least 15 days before your intended travel date.

    For long stay visa applications, we advise you to apply at least 1 month prior to your expected departure date.

    This website will guide you in every step of the visa application procedures and also gives you detailed information about our visa application centres.

    How to submit your visa application

    To apply for a visa, you should first register on the France-Visas website, and then follow the instructions.

    For the first application, please visit TLScontact Website for more details about the procedure.

    The Embassy of France in Hanoi and the Consulate General of France in Ho Chi Minh City would like to inform you that visa applications are admissible without geographical restrictions in TLScontact Centres in Vietnam.
