Are you a non-European student coming to NEOMA on exchange from one of our partner universities in Europe?
If so, and you also have a residence permit marked “student-mobility program” or “researcher” issued by another Member State of the European Union (the terms may vary from one country to another): you have the possibility to apply for an international mobility authorization given from our French Department of the Interior (Ministère de l’Intérieur).
This international mobility authorization will dispense you from having to apply for a visa for France.
Unfortunately, only residence permits are accepted, and not student-mobility visas.
What to do:
Please send the following documents to the HUB by e-mail, as we will have to submit your file to the French Department of the Interior at least one month before your arrival:
Other European country visa holders (non-EU members), or students with a regular residence permit (not marked “international mobility”) will have to apply for a French visa at their nearest French Consulate (but NOT with Campus France).
The renewal of your visa or residence authorization must be done 4 months before the expiration of your current document.
To begin the renewal procedure, please contact your HUB 2 months before your French visa expire:
If you contact us less than 2 months before the expiration of your visa or residence permit, you will have to return to your home country and apply for a new visa.
