We offer an industry-leading service for French Schengen visas, we have access to Premium appointments that are not available to the public so that your travel is not disrupted. 

 

Multi Travel Visas Ltd is a specialist travel visa company, we have been accredited by the French Consulate since 2010 (number A2011/107) until visa submission process had been transferred to TLS Contact. We are now one of just a handful of “accredited agencies” in the whole of the UK and use a separate system for sooner appointments. Our company has a wealth of experience and our dedicated consultants will guide you with meticulous attention to detail.

Sooner appointments than in the public system through an accredited agency!

If you choose to apply for a visa through us you would not need to book an appointment. As an accredited agency we can usually provide a slot in the next few days, though it may take longer during the busy travel periods.  

From the date of appointment French visa takes approximately 1 week to process for most nationals: S. African, Indian, Chinese, Russian, Thai, Filipino, Turkish etc. 

But it takes 17 calendar days for the following nationals: Afghanistan, Algeria, Bangladesh, Cameroon, Central Africa, Chad, Congo, DR Congo, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Kenya, Lebanon, Libya, Mauritania, Niger, Nigeria, Pakistan, Palestine, Rwanda, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Vietnam, Yemen and Zimbabwe.

 

We can apply for residents anywhere in England, Wales, Scotland, N. Ireland and Isle of Man, as long as you have a UK resident-type visa, such as work visa, Spouse visa, Tier 4 student visa (but not a visitor visa).
