Congratulations Thelma
Did you reserve tours for the purpose of the visa application?

No I didn’t and I don’t think it’s necessary. I’ve never submitted more than a one-pager cover letter summarizing my application and profile and hotel/flight bookings.

Also, a colleague of mine applied last week Tuesday, same simple application and she got the visa yesterday… multiple entry 10days.

I think the simpler and more detailed it is, the better

What do you mean by travel itinerary? The flight bookings or hotel bookings? Also, how was this not caught by the VAC agents? Smh for them. Well, she can only hope for the best at this point if it’s either of the two things mentioned above because I know those things matter, with Schengen visas.

If I plan to travel for vacation by October this year can I apply for the visa now ? Or the visa will expire before then after approval?
Re: Securing Visa To France, Applying From Nigeria... by Folarge06(m): 5:17am On Feb 17
You can only apply six (6) months in advance to your travel date.

For instance I applied and got my visa this February and My travel date is still June.

Submit 6months bank statement please.
You have to show that you are equally self sufficient, so add your bank statement and your husband’s to your application.

So sorry about your refusal.
1. Did you overstay your first visit?
2. You can reapply but with a very strong home tie, you should also back up your application with an assurance letter to convince the VO that you’ll return. If the VO finds it convincing enough, then you’re good to go.
Best of luck.

3-months bank statements is the requirement, as stated on the french visa application form

When I went to submit my documents and biometrics, I had printed 6-months, the lady who attended to me took out 3-months gave me and took the 3-months left and my visa was granted.

Good afternoon..
Please advise.
I am re - applying to France after a denial last month.
Should I submit my previous refusal letter or I should just ignore it?

I used booking dot com. You just have to make sure you’re selecting a hotel that allows you to pay at the venue upon arrival and free cancellation. They will ask for your card details but they won’t deduct anything. Done this twice now and no issues.
I know the feedback usually comes in timely so there’s no chance that they’d have swiped the card before then.

Which Nigerian card did you used

Hello,
Has anyone recently applied for a visa using this TLS. I don’t know why they changed it from VSF. This is my 4th visa application and it usually comes out in 3-4 days. It’s been over a week and nothing yet. I’m tracking it and it’s saying processing. I don’t get. Did anyone else’s application take this long?

Oh, so they have totally moved from VSF? I even thought they are running both together.
