Long stay Visa fo UK Passport holders

As of the 1st of January 2021, british passport holders will need a Long Stay Visa if staying in France or a French Overseas territory for more than 90 days no matter what the reason for travel, be it Business/Tourism/Visiting Family or just staying in your second home in France.

Specific case of owners of second homes in France:

 

  1. if you are spending between 3 to 6 months a year in France, you are not considered as a resident in France and cannot pretend to a ‘Carte de Séjour’ under the withdrawal agreement. You will have to apply for a temporary Long Stay visitor visa ‘VLS-T Visiteur’.

  2. if you spend more than 6 months a year in France, you are then considered as a French resident and must apply for a Long Stay visitor visa (visa de long séjour valant titre de séjour VLS-TS « visiteur »).

  • You don’t have to spend 2-3 hours going through the process!

  • You don’t have to go back to collect your Passport !

  • You don’t lose money for incomplete or incorrect documents!

  • We can get your visa in 4 days! (see notes above regarding processing times for certain nationalities.)

If you do it yourself!

This entire procedure could take you more than 3 hours! Plus another trip back to collect your visa !!



  • Their call centre is extremely busy and you could be on the phone for around 15-20 minutes to make an appointment.

  • They schedule appointments every half an hour – but they book around 50 people per slot. This means that even though you have a fixed appointment, you could still be in a queue with 49 other people for the same time slot!


So you have to get there a bit earlier than your appointment time. Once you get there you will be in a queue for around 25 minutes or more.



Once you get in you go through a number of processes i.e.

 

  • A security check,

  • Next you go to the Welcome Desk where they run a quick check on your passport and application form.

  • Then you go to the waiting area, where you wait your turn to submit your documents to a customer service representative.

  • The customer service representative then checks all your documents thoroughly.

  • Next you go to pay for your application – where once again you may have to queue.

  • Then you wait in another queue to do your Biometrics.

  • Two days later you go back to TLS to once again queue up to get your passport and visa back.



The entire process could take 2-3 hours!!

Multiple Entry & Validity of Visas


1. Please note that a multiple entry visa is issued at the DISCRETION of the Embassy. Even if you have requested a multiple entry visa on your application it is by no means guaranteed that you will get one.
2. The validity (length) period is also at the discretion of the Embassy.
3. Once the Embassy have made their decision we will not enter into any discussion or correspondence over these two issues.
