Will my 13 year old daughter (with Indian passport) need visa to visit France as part of her school trip?

Post by Awan2108 » Sat Sep 16, 2023 9:26 pm

My 13 year old daughter (with Indian passport) need to visit France as part of her school trip. Will she need visa for this? (FYI... We are living UK for a number of years now.)

My initial view was that she will need, however, after reading this letter https://www.the-chateau.com/assets/Down ... ionals.pdf, which can be found here https://commonslibrary.parliament.uk/ho ... ool-trips/ I'm confused now. It suggest that she will not need a visa when she is going on school trip.

Can someone please confirm this? Do you have any personal experience with your son or daughter school trip? Any information will be helpful.

Thanks in advance.

Don't have the experience; however, to be safe, I would recommend to get a visa, since it's free for a school trip.

The first link posted in the original post does state that "Note that this, alike a visa, cannot completely guarantee entry into France."

Wiser to apply for a visa.

Many schools in the UK have non-UK pupils and know how to proceed in cases like this, I also would think of asking the school - they might be able to advise.

Hello Awan2108,

Please could I check whether your daughter needed a visa for the school trip to France? My son (also on Indian passport) has a trip planned for next year and I was looking for information as well.

Kind regards

Have you been in touch with son's school - they must know how to deal with this.
