uk visa related question

hello i wanted o ask can i visit france for 1 week on my uk multiple 5 year visa


  • Of course not. The UK is an entirely separate entity from the Schengen Zone. Your UK Visa is (rightfully) immaterial.

  • @MuhammadKhan7

    Terry is absolutely correct. Look here

    The French Embassy DO NOT accept Schengen visa applicatiions from non residents.
    A five year multiple entry visa only allows you to visit the UK for a maximum of six months it does not mean you are a resident.
    The UK is not a member of the Schengen zone and therefore your UK visa does not give you any special concession.

  • so can i apply for a french visa in uk
  • @MuhammadKhan7
    NO. you cannot apply for a French Schengen visa from the UK as you DO NOT live in the UK. You are only a visitor.

    If you would take the time to read the link I gave you instead of being so ignorant you will see it clrarly states,

    People who are not resident in the UK must apply for their Schengen visas at the French Consulate in their country of residence.
  • Of course not. French Embassy do not accept visa applications from non residents.
