France Travel Information

Filipina Summit delegates from outside France should check early with their travel agent or nearest French Embassy or Consulate to be certain that all necessary steps are completed to meet visa requirements. Overseas visitors require a valid passport and may require other documentation such as an entry visa (ask your travel agent). If you have questions about travelling from another country, please check https://www.diplomatie.gouv.fr/en/coming-to-france/ or the French embassy or consulate nearest to you, or ask your travel agent. 

Visa and Passports

To visit France, all travelers will need to meet some basic requirements: 

  • have a valid travel document, such as a passport

  • have no criminal or immigration-related convictions

  • have enough funds for your stay (The amount of money you will need can vary. It depends on things such as how long you will stay and whether you have confirmed hotel reservations.)

Letter of Invitation

This document may be needed to apply for a business visitor visa.

If a Letter of Invitation is requested, please contact FWN. Please be informed that you will have to have paid the summit registration fees in advance, confirmed air and hotel reservations, before you will receive the Letter of Invitation. These documents [paid summit registration, air and hotel confirmations, and Letter of Invitation] may be required for attachment for a visa application. As visa requirements can take several weeks, Letters of Invitation will only be arranged before 31 August 2019. Letters of Invitation requested after this date cannot be provided unless waived by the FWN CEO or appropriate FWN Officer.
