TLScontact recently opened a brand new visa application centre for France in Franceville, Gabon. This is the third TLScontact centre in Gabon, with two other centres already operating in Libreville, the capital, and in Port Gentil.
The Franceville visa application centre is situated at the Coeur de Samba Belle Vue Hotel. It has already opened its door to applicants, following the renewal of the visa outsourcing contract, signed by TLScontact with the French consulate in Gabon on 19 May 2023. Operations continue normally in Libreville and Port Gentil.
As the French consulate in Gabon represents 12 Schengen countries, our local teams will be processing Schengen visa applications for France, but also for the other Schengen countries represented by the consulate, managing the administrative aspects of the application process on behalf of the local French diplomatic mission.
The new Franceville centre will only operate one day per month for now, adding more working days during the summer to keep up with the rising demand in the high season.
TLScontact has been operating in Gabon since 2016, first in Libreville, then in Port Gentil, at a centre inaugurated in 2019. “The opening of this new centre in Franceville allows us to be closer to customers in one of the biggest cities in Gabon, which saves them a long commute across the country to submit their application,” says Mohammed Mtir, TLScontact Centre Manager.
The opening of this new centre further expands TLScontact’s presence in Africa, allowing us to increase our proximity to visa applicants and provide our government clients with more administrative assistance across the globe.
