There is good news for those whose bucket list of must-see places includes the Eiffel Tower or the Sacre-Coeur. For the first time, a tourism kiosk has been opened in the city by the French embassy in association with VFS Global.
Not only can people use the kiosk to find out about the various destinations in France, they can also book tickets for city tours, concerts, and passes for the likes of the Louvre and Eiffel Tower. They can do this simultaneously with the visa application process.
The move has come at a time when the number of people visiting France from India — on business, for studies, and for tourism — has seen an exponential growth since 2015, when the 48-hour visa processing time was introduced by the French government for Indian applicants.
