The only benefit you will have is that your visa to visit him in France will be processed quickly and at low cost to you. If he travels with you anywhere (within the EU) then you are also entitled to travel with him without let or hinderance. If you are traveling alone, then you'll need to carry appropriate visas. If you are traveling to another (non-EU) ...

It's hard to prove a negative, but in general nothing stops you from getting a Schengen visa while your Type D visa is being processed. Upon receiving the Type D visa your old Schengen visa will be cancelled to avoid an overlap. Note that the consulate might not look too kindly on such a practice, as you will potentially overstay your tourist visa if the ...

It depends on your status in the UK, as per the French embassy: If you do not hold a UK resident permit with the mention “Family Member of an EEA national” or “permanent residence card”, you must hold a Schengen Visa to travel to the Schengen area and evidence that you are exercising your right of free movement as the family member of an EU ...

I am an Egyptian man living in Egypt. My wife lives in the UK. We were planing on go on holiday to France. Is it possible for me to travel to France as an EU-Spouse without needing a Visit visa, or does she have to come and take me with her and enter together France? You can travel to France as an EU spouse, but you will need a visa. The visa is free of ...

To put it quite simply: As you do not need a visa for a short stay tourist visit to the Schengen area, you do not need a visa to exit the area as well. The most that will happen is that you will get two stamps on your passport, one for entry and another for exit. Upon arrival at UK, you will have to produce evidence that you are a entitled to enter the UK ...

Japanese citizens do not need a visa to enter the Schengen area as long as their stay does not exceed 90 days. This is why you had no problem entering France since your tourist stay was shorter than 90 days. When exiting France, the only thing the officers will be interested in is whether you overstayed your visa or 90 days or whether there are some other ...

I think it's pretty tight, and you likely won't make it. Consider this time plan: 20 minutes from arrival to gate to getting your luggage (this is the minimum ever FWIW). 5 minutes walking to a TAXI stand. 5 minutes explaining the TAXI driver that you really want to go "around the corner" -- tell him/have written: Allez à la gare TGV de l'aeroport, s'il ...

I hate answers which say "Instead of what you're asking about, what about this?" but instead of what you're asking about, what about this? I was extremely surprised to see there is indeed a train FranfortAM -> Poitiers. (NOTE HOWEVER that, tragically, you have to shuffle stations in Paris: it appears that 53 minutes IS PROBABLY NOT ENOUGH TIME ...

You can potentially make it if you walk fast enough and if your luggage doesn't take ages to be delivered... Your flight will probably be on time as you are flying with Lufthansa. But since this is the end of the day, there might be a bit of traffic jam to get to the parking for the plane. Then, let's pick 10 minutes for this. Then 20 minutes to get to the ...

If you search the web, you might be able to find deals up to 50% discount for Eurodisney. Usually, you will have to opt for a specific date. Sometimes, the deal is reserved to the local people but not always. You can search websites like ticketmaster.

I do not know on what page of the website you found the link you quote stating short study visas have a fee, but I could not find such requirement on the vfs-france website. On the Visa Fees page, I can read: ... Student Long Stay : 50 EUR (3788 INR) ... and no other fee for short stays. I double checked by looking at the French consulate in ...

Yes, there are definitely squat houses in Paris Today, in contemporary paris you can find alternative political and cultural activity in various squats or social centers. These are abandoned buildings (often government owned) that have been occupied and re-appropriated by groups of artists, performers, activists, musicians or just people that need a roof ...

Even if one week were enough time, an application filed so soon after your wedding will risk scrutiny for a potential marriage of convenience. In that case, you would need to present much of the same evidence you'd need to demonstrate your relationship before marrying. It would be safer to gather that evidence now, in which case you should probably just ...

It does not really make a difference. In practice, I can imagine that border guards outside of France might be less familiar with French documents and are a bit more likely to let your friend slip through but Schengen consulates often have lists of all the documents that count as an official invitation (as an example, here is the list from the Belgian ...

I worked for Bell Canada for a while and this is a question that came up a lot, mostly with people vacationing overseas. I don't know much about Orange or French plans but here's some things to consider: How does your current plan compare to other plans on the market? If you have an older plan, it might be cheaper than any plan you would be able to get if ...

You have several ways to buy food in France : - go for small stores like butcher and baker. Those usually offer the best quality but the price could be expensive. - go to the supermarket. You have small, medium and hypermarket. The bigger the supermarket is, the more choice you'll have. Supermarket offer a selection of local products and national brand ...

I would suggest Twitter as a source for this kind of information - anything that will be significant (not very small region but the whole country) will be easy to find there. https://twitter.com/search?q=france+strike for example will find a fair number of articles about the SNCF strike that you're referring to, as well as some recent past strikes.

This website: http://www.cestlagreve.fr/ has information on most of the strikes. With a little bit of google translate, you can search by tag for the trains or other types of transport. And as the commenter below pointed out, there is even an app. If you are worried about the trains in Paris, for example, search by "RATP", "SNCF", or "Paris". For the ...

Source: French, 32 years of living in France. First of all, while we French have a reputation for going on strikes often, it is actually quite disproportionate. For example, I have myself not participated to a single strike, ever, and few of my friends have. I have, however, experienced a few :) The strikes are more frequent in certain domains of ...

Food in France is very "local". As said before you will not find a centralized listing of what is on offer and where. You need to ask the locals, the owners of your vacation house, the tourist office where you can shop and for what. There are several large supermarkets where I stay in France and there is very little between them, the one I prefer has a great ...

There seems to be no dedicated site displaying French Strikes, but the below information may be useful. Strikes (les grèves) in France affect public transport services fairly often. Here are some useful sites for up-to-the-minute information during France's industrial disputes and manifestations. Click here to view the useful links - there are too ...

Unfortunately I think there is no governemental website listing all planned strikes. Most of the time, we know upcoming strikes just a few days ahead with the news (TV, web, etc). So your best bet is to go directly to the public transport websites, generally they have to inform users about strikes, or even call them directly. For your second question, ...
