Indonesia - France

The Embassy of France continues to issue Schengen visas to persons wishing to travel to France, following the normal procedure. The holders of a Schengen visa issued regularly by another country of the Schengen area can still enter in France. If you are looking for additional information, please only trust reliable sources such as the website of the Embassy of France in Indonesia.

In accordance to European regulations which concern all the Schengen Countries the French Embassy in Indonesia has implemented a new visa procedure by issuing biometric visas since November 2013 for any travel purposes. Further information and FAQ on the data protection in VIS is available on the following homepage:

Therefore personal appearance of every applicant is mandatory in order to give his/her personal biometric data (finger scans and digital photograph) unless you are under an exemption case.

If your fingerprints and photograph were previously collected for the purpose of applying for a Schengen visa within the previous 59 months and a visa with the mention "VIS" has been granted, then a new fingerprints collection won’t be needed for your next visa application.

If your fingerprints and photograph have not been previously collected, your personal appearance is mandatory.

If your fingerprints and photograph have been previously collected and no Schengen visa has been granted, then your fingerprints and photograph must be collected once more.

If your old Schengen visa sticker bears a note “VIS0”, a new set of fingerprints collection for the next visa application is needed.

Should the previously collected fingerprints and photo prove to be of insufficient quality, the applicant will be informed by TLScontact and requested to submit new biometric data.

Should the previously collected biometric data exceed 59 months, you will be obliged to present yourself once again in order to re-do the biometric fingerprints and photograph.

Since the finger scans are not required from children under the age of 12 their personal appearance is not mandatory .

Your visa application file must be complete at the time of submission at TLScontact (Please find here the list of documents to provide). An incomplete application file will lead automatically to a visa refusal by the Embassy.

To check whether you need to apply through the TLScontact Visa Center or directly at the Embassy of France in Jakarta, please check on Jurisdiction page.

Regarding the categories of visa: Spouse of French citizen, Relative and spouse of E.U. citizen and Long stay student, the website is currently being updated.
