  1. France Expat Forum for Expats Living in France
    Last year my wife and I (retirees) thought we were applying for long-stay visas, and we apparently made a mistake and only got one-year visas. So we are returning to the U.S. shortly to go through it again. This year when we began the visa application process online, we received a list of...

    My wife and I are applying for a long stay visitor visa to France. We have a 10 year old son. The San Francisco consulate web site for long stay visitor visa says: Does this mean my child is exempt from needing a Visa? If not, does this mean I need to fill out a new application form for him...

    Hi everyone. I have my appointment with the French consulate in DC set up for a couple of weeks from now, and I'll be applying for a long-stay visitor visa. I'm planning to move to France to join my French partner, who has been living there for the past few years (time for long-distance to...

  8. France Expat Forum for Expats Living in France
    Hello, I have a question for anyone who has very recently gone through the visa application process as a non-French spouse of a French citizen, as everything seems to be changing and it's not clear where I should go - préfecture or OFII - upon arrival in France. My husband and I got married...
