France eases visa process in South Africa [fr]
Applicants for a short or long stay visa for France may now apply at a CAPAGO centre of their choice.
Applicants for a short or long stay visa for France, regardless of their place of residence in South Africa, may now apply at any of the three CAPAGO centres in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban.
Visas will then be processed and issued by one of the two French Consulates (Cape Town or Johannesburg).
By giving applicants a choice regarding the location of their visa application, the French authorities want to better facilitate the visa process, to ensure the best possible service is provided to visa applicants in South Africa.
