Turkish citizen with a UK 5 Year Visa wanting to visit France during UK stay
  • Hi
    I wonder if anyone can give me some advice. My mother in law is Turkish and she has a 5 year visa to visit us in the UK. We would like to take her to Paris in Sept 14. If she applies for a Shengen visa in Istanbul, do you know how long it would take. Plus, is this correct as her first point of entry will be the UK on her Turkish passport, and UK visa. I would assume it is right that she applies to the French consulate in Istanbul.....if anyone knows I would be very grateful.

    Kindest regards
  • The UK is not part of the Schengen area so your mothers first country of entry in the Schengen group is France.
    Your mother in law needs to apply at least 15 days before she wants to travel. The information you need is here. http://www.vfsglobal.com/france/turkey/istanbul/english/allaboutvisa.html
  • Thankyou Alethia....I will have a look at this. Much appreciated.

Howdy, Stranger!
