Some days back , I was invited to participate in an interactive session on France at the Park Hotel with a few fellow Kolkata bloggers. The event was attended by Fabrice Etienne, the Consul General of France in Kolkata and Catherine Oden, Director Atout France – France Tourism Development Agency.
France has always been a traveler ‘s dream destination and the session was aimed at making people more aware of the places to visit, the various kinds of activities one can indulge in and share information about visa processing and other important details. Do you know that it now takes only 48 hours to get your visa approved and that you no longer need to submit details of your hotel bookings and vouchers for a visa? The bio metric screening has also been put on hold for some time and the embassy is looking at more opportunities to make the visa process a smooth and simple one for travelers.
