I am from India (with no UK or Schengen visa), visiting London and Paris. Entering London first, staying there for 2 weeks. From London, taking the Eurostar to Paris, staying there for a week and then returning back to London via the Eurostar and then from London taking a flight back home (India).
I am planning to apply for a UK Visit Visa and Schengen visa in parallel using the "Keep your passport" facility provided by UKVI.
Will France consider/review/approve my visa application without a UK visit visa (as it will be still in processing) or should I first get the UK visa and then apply for France (Schengen visa)?
