Processing time

THE INDICATED PROCESSING TIME IS CALCULATED FROM THE DAY A COMPLETE FILE IS LODGED. IT DOES NOT TAKE IN CONSIDERATION THE FEW WEEKS WAITING PERIOD TO OBTAIN AN APPOINTMENT.

FAILING TO PRODUCE A COMPLETE FILE ON THE DAY OF YOUR VISA APPLICATION WILL EXTEND THE PROCESSING TIME.

Following the Schengen regulation, visa applications must be submitted at least 2 weeks (14days) prior to the planned departure to the Schengen area.

The embassy of France in Ireland is not in a position to guarantee a decision will be received on time when visa applications are lodged less than 14 days before the intended trip or when the file is not complete from day 1.

The usual process time takes 10 days for a short stay and 2 to 3 weeks for a long stay, however due to Schengen cooperation and consultations, be aware that the average processing time may reach more than 2 weeks for nationals of the following countries:

Afghanistan Algeria Bangladesh
Burma Democratic Republic of Congo Egypt
Iran Iraq Jordan
Lebanon Libya Mauritania
Morocco Nigeria North Korea
Palestine Pakistan Rwanda
Saudi Arabia Somalia Sri Lanka
Sudan Syria Tunisia
Uzbekistan Vietnam Yemen
Zimbabwe
