Do you need a visa?

All foreign nationals wanting to come to France must be able to submit statutory documentary evidence at the border for the reasons for their stay, their means of support and accomodation arrangements. As a rule, unless exempted, a short-stay visa (also called Schengen visa) is required.

Please check the French visa control on the web page of French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development of France.

Visa applications are to be done to the nearest French embassy or consulate to you. Visa applications requirements and documents needed are to be requested from the concerned French embassy or consulate.

Please be aware that we won't be able to contact directly consulates or embassies and we do not intervene in anyway with the Visa process as the participant is sole responsible to apply and follow up on his Visa application.

Even with the letter of Invitation and in case we are contacted by the concerned consulates or embassies, we will not be able to support the participant Visa applicant unless he/she is fully registered to the conference and paid the registration fees. For this, we strongly advise our participants to register to the conference before applying for the Visa.
