[30 July 2020] Resumption of Visa Services

Following the end of the lockdown period in France and the progressive re-opening of border in most Schengen countries, the Visa department of the Consulate General of France in Hong Kong has partially resumed its service on 22 June. Applicants may take an appointment on our FRANCE VISAS appointment module.

This resumption of service will, at first, only concern the following visas :

- STUDENTS (Short & Long Stay),

- PROFESSIONALS (Short & Long Stay), domestic helpers excluded

- FAMILY VISAS (Long Stay),

- RETURN VISAS (for holders of LONG STAY VISAS and RESIDENCE PERMIT expiring after 15 June 2020).

If you are not concerned by any of the above categories, please don’t take an appointment as it would not be considered as valid.

Please also note that social distancing will apply within the Visa premises, and wearing a facemask is mandatory.

As always, be on time in order to secure your appointment.

You may experience a slightly longer than usual wait within the visa premises.

Please, send an email for any specific question :
