Hello!

I'm a bit confused about the right process here, maybe someone can help?

I'm not EU citizen, I live in France for 5 years with carte de sejour (10 years), recently I got married out of France, with non EU citizen.

What would be the first steps to get her to France? How and where we apply for the visa/titre de sejour?

Thanks

Thanks for the link.

I already read it, but I didn't understood if the first visa is Visiteur or Vie Privee?

She has to wait during the procedure in her country or she can come over?

Thank you in advance

As far as I know, it should be a vie privée et familiale visa - and your spouse will have to go through the OFII processing, including the "contrat d'integration" (i.e. the civics and language classes, if required).

I believe the spouse has to wait in their country of residence until the home inspection and the rest of the preliminaries are complete and the spouse is asked to come to the local consulate to complete the visa application.
Cheers,
Bev
