Will I need an ETIAS or a Schengen Visa?
France is part of both the EU and Schengen Zone. This means France can be accessed by a holder of either a Schengen visa or an ETIAS visa. However, you should consider the rest of your journey or any likely future journeys when applying. A Schengen visa will only allow you to visit one country on your journey (France). ETIAS will allow you to visit an unlimited amount of EU countries within a 3 year period. However, remember to check if you are eligible for both visas prior to starting an application.
Why should I visit France
France is the home of some of the world’s most famous attractions. The city of Paris alone is the home of the Eiffel Tower (one of the world’s most famous monuments), The Louvre (the world’s most famous art gallery), Notre Dame, The Arc de Triomphe, and The Palace of Versailles. Paris also has a reputation for high quality food and for being the city of love.
Outside Paris, France isn’t lacking in attractions. From the coast of Brittany to the walled city of Carcassonne, Alsace or even the natural wonder of Mont Blanc, France has something for everyone. It is a nation of grandeur, in the form of nature, architecture and history.
