I wonder if anyone can give me some advice. My mother in law is Turkish and she has a 5 year visa to visit us in the UK. We would like to take her to Paris in Sept 14. If she applies for a Shengen visa in Istanbul, do you know how long it would take. Plus, is this correct as her first point of entry will be the UK on her Turkish passport, and UK visa. I would assume it is right that she applies to the French consulate in Istanbul.....if anyone knows I would be very grateful.
