Applying for a French visa in Malaysia

Visa applications submitted in Malaysia are processed by the French Embassy in Kuala Lumpur.

For general information and for preparing, submitting and tracking your application, log on to France-visas, the official website for visa application to France.

**NB: According to Schengen rules, the application must be submitted at the Embassy of the country where you plan to spend most of the time and NOT the first entry point

France-visas is a single portal with all the information you need process and help you every step of the way (preparing the application, entering details, submitting and tracking the application).

The main steps in applying for a visa

Do I need a visa?

PNG First, use “Visa wizard” to check, based on your situation, whether you need a visa and if so, what type. The wizard will also tell you what documents must be enclosed with your application, along with the relevant fee.

Complete your application online

PNG Once you have confirmed that you need a visa, you can complete your application on our online portal. You will be asked to create a France-Visas account, which you will need for each step of the process.

Please note that starting 2020, the Embassy of France will only accept computer-filled application forms from the official website mentionned above. Forms made available by travel agencies and non-official websites as well as handwritten application forms will be refused.

Submit your application to the visa centre

PNG Once you have completed your online application, you have to print the form and submit to the visa section at the Embassy of France. France-Visas will provide you with all necessary information on how and where to submit your application.

Make an appointment

Once you finish the process, you need to make an appointment with the consular service :"Whom should I contact?".


Waiting times for appointments and for processing applications will vary depending on your nationality and the time of year.

Users are therefore asked to submit their visa applications well in advance "at least 2 weeks" of their departure date.
