    Update from Embassy:

    The French government has decided to re-establish internal border controls following the terrorist attacks perpetuated in Paris and within the French region last 13 November.

    This decision does not affect the validity of visas previously issued by French consulates or Schengen missions across the world, which should continue to allow entry and free circulation into and within the Schengen area.

    To facilitate border entry, The Embassy encourages holders of Schengen visas to have in their possession all documents justifying their trip to France.
