Visa Application Fees For French Schengen Visa

1. Visa fees

To apply for a visa, you will have to pay a visa fee and a service fee, which are payable at the TLScontact application center by either cash or debit/credit card. The visa fee is collected for the Consulate General of France in London and the service fee is collected for the processing of your visa application at TLScontact.

Attention: Payment of the visa fee and the service fee does not guarantee that a visa will be granted. The visa fee and the service fee are both non-refundable and non-transferable if the visa application is denied by the Consulate-General or if you decide to terminate your application.
