My friend is an Indian citizen and will be travelling to London for a business trip. The visa is valid till the date of his return flight. His return flight has a stop over in Paris for more than 12 hours. His flight from London stops at ORY (Orly) and leaves to India from CDG (Charles de Gaulle).

Does my friend need a visa for France?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


Yes, a visa will be required, as your friend will need to leave the ORY airport and travel to CDG "landside" through France.

This case is explicitly listed as one in which a visa is required at the bottom of the following page: France Diplomatie
