Students participating in VISA group processing do not have to schedule an appointment at the consulate. If you are not participating in group processing, we recommend you secure an appointment at your jurisdictional French Consulate now to ensure you receive your visa in time for travel. Remember you should book your appointment while you are waiting for your Campus France registration to be processed (unless you are applying at the LA consulate). If you are applying for your visa in LA you must wait until you have received your Campus France confirmation before scheduling your appointment.
Please note appointments are going fast; the next available appointment at the French Consulate in New York is December 14th.
