Visas

The French Embassy in Namibia doesn’t issue visas.

People residing in Namibia wishing to apply for a short-stay visa to visit France’s European territory (i.e. the Schengen Area) must contact the German Embassy in Windhoek to check the procedure to follow.

The French Consulate in Johannesburg, South Africa processes visas applications for people residing in Namibia wishing to apply for a short-stay visa for France’s non-European territories or a long-stay visa for France. To complete your online application you must select South Africa as your country of submission of application.
