The French Embassy in New Delhi has convened that the Schengen agreement for visa has not been suspended, as rumoured earlier. However, in the wake of the unprecedented terrorist attacks in Paris and its vicinity, new stringent methods have been deployed to ensure the highest level of security for all passengers landing on French soil.

Pray for Paris

Sheetal Wadhwa Munshaw, Atout France India Director, was quoted, “I checked with a Consulate General and Schengen visa issued by other countries is allowed to enter France but with stringent measures. Those who have put incorrect information based on false rumours on facebook, it would be good to remove the incorrect information.”

In response to some questions on visas, the Ambassador of France to India, Mr François Richier, released the below statement:

  1. In line with the Schengen Area’s rules, and for security reasons, France has restored (with immediate effect) systematic checks at its borders
  2. Entries of Indian nationals holding a valid Schengen visa are not affected
  3. French consular services across India continue to function normally and are issuing visas for France to Indian nationals

The following phone line for tourists and visitors in Paris has been established: +33 (0) 1 45 55 80 00 – Indian Embassy in Paris: +33 (0) 1 40 50 70 70.
