Opening of the Visa Application Centre in Houston
To better welcome the public and reduce waiting times, the Consulate General of France in Houston will outsource the collection of visa applications to VFS Global.
As from Wednesday 30 May 2018, the VFS Visa Application Centre (VAC) for FRANCE in Houston will collect by appointments only, on behalf of the French Authorities, visa applications from applicants residing in the jurisdiction of the Consulate General of France in Houston (Texas, Arkansas & Oklahoma).
Applicants residing in the jurisdiction of the Consulate General of France in Houston can already schedule an appointment on the France-Visas website.
A service fee will be charged and will be payable online when making an appointment.
To facilitate the process for students and others who do not live near an application center, a mobile visa application service may be offered.
