If the French Consular Authority is competent:
Beginning 8 December 2015, the date of entry into force of the liberalization agreement with the European Union, citizens of the Republic of Palau shall be exempted from visas to enter and stay within the Schengen area for travels not exceeding 90 days every 180-day period.
This exemption covers all purposes of travel, including travel involving the exercise of gainful activity. However, this provision has a very narrow scope as it has been prescribed that the same does not apply to businessmen, athletes, artists performing an activity on ad-hoc basis, journalists sent by the media of their country of residence, and employees travelling for the purpose of training.
Citizens of the Republic of Palau who expect to intend to exercise gainful activity in France are nevertheless required to secure a Work Authorization when French legislation requires it.
