To which countries does my Schengen visa allow me to go ?

New : Applicants holders of a Schengen visa with biometric data collection are exempt from providing the same data again.

Applicants who have already obtained a Schengen visa with biometric data collection less than 5 years ago (precisely within the last 59 months) are now exempt from providing their biometric data, provided the previous Schengen visa mentions ‘VIS’.

To qualify for this exemption measure, you have to support your visa application, a copy of your previous Schengen visa indicating the ‘VIS’ mention. If these conditions are met, you are not required to present in person to give your biometric data. Your visa application must contain, aside from the other required supporting documents, two passport photos meeting the ICAO standards.

Please note that in the event that the biometric data previously recorded could not be used to issue you a new visa, the Embassy may ask to collect your biometric data once more.

How to apply

You must book an appointment with TLScontact to submit your visa application. You must produce :

The French Embassy in Indonesia has outsourced visa applications to TLScontact. Using a service provider allows the Embassy to speed up the application process in an effort to improve the quality of service provided to applicants.

TLScontact was tasked with checking the contents of applications and with receiving the visa application fee (equivalent in rupiah of 60 € for a short stay visa) on behalf of the Embassy, as well as receiving a service fee (equivalent in rupiah of 25 €). The company may point out to applicants incomplete files and invite them to complete their application, or single out for the Embassy urgent applications. TLScontact then transmits the applications to the visa section of the Embassy of France, whose prerogative remains to issue or not the visa, as it is the case today. Passports shall then be retrieved from TLScontact, or transmitted through express mail service as the case may be.
