Fijians who wish to travel to France or to any French territory now have visa application services from Suva.
French Ambassador to Fiji Jean-François Fitou opened the French Visa Application Centre in Mid-City plaza this morning.
Services will be open Monday to Friday with Wednesday specifically set aside for biometric data collection of applicants.
“The service that will be provided here is Schengen Visa, for France if you want to go to France, or for Europe, if France is the ever the main destination or the port of entry, offcourse we will examine the individual applications but this is the gateway to Europe”.
The operation has been outsourced to New Zealand company TTService.
As of 2017, Fijians had to travel to Vanuatu to lodge French visa applications.
