I am an EU citizen (but not French) and would like my family member to apply for a French visa. We would arrive in France from different places and meet in Paris to spend a day there and then leave the Schengen zone together.
One of the questions on the visa form asks the following (emphasis mine):
Do you join or travel with a family member from an EU country (excluding France), the EEA or the Swiss Confederation?
Answering "yes" would reduce the number of required documents so we'd like to qualify if possible. But the question is: What exactly do they mean by "joining"?
I will be in France on the date of my family member's arrival there. But I am not residing in France. Would that still count as joining?
