Travel to France

For those visiting potential pre-Games training camps in France, the facility you are visiting will support you with the visa application process, if applicable, and will issue visa letter(s) of invitation. Visa application processing times vary from country to country. For a short-stay visa, applicants are advised to apply at least 15 days and no more than 6 months before the planned visit. Due to the current health situation, visa processing times may take longer than usual.
