Hy guys, we have all heard about different Schengen countries around the world and some of us will like to know about the vfs France visa application in Nigeria, France visa requirement in Nigeria, how to fill France visa application form online, and so on. I will be giving you this information here. I will also explain to you all you need to know about Schengen.

France visa application requirement in nigeria

France is a Schengen country that is also in the Schengen area .kindly see step by step France visa requirements. France visa application in Nigeria is handled by Vfs Nigeria. Vfs Nigeria handles the application on behalf of France embassy Lagos.


Get your international Nigeria Passport ready


Make a colored copy of your passport data page (data page is the page where your photo is on your Nigeria international passport )


Visit the france visa application in nigeria form link .


Register and create a profile for your application


The next step is to complete and submit the France visa application form. All information must be correct and accurate. Once the form is submitted, you cannot make any changes.


After submission, applicants make mistakes by just visiting the center and they are turned back. But with this information you won’t get turned back, intact you are prepared. So kindly print the receipt and visa application form you submitted.


Then you can visit the vfs nigeria address in Lagos, vfs submission center, third Roundabout lekki with your documents, and cash. The france visa application in Nigeria visa fee including all other charges is about N50000. kindly note that for now France visa application is not based on appointment and the France visa fee is not fixed.


I do advise you to snap your passport picture there, the reason is that these countries change photo specs, and it is painful that after you spend money at home to call a photographer to snap you when you take it to the vfs center, they then turn you back. So save the stress, get there on time, tell them the country and they will snap you. They have a photographer inside the center.

Step 9

Submit and proceed for biometrics. You can also pay for the courier. You will be notified when your passport is out.
