How to get a business visa: Can I apply for a short-stay visa?

If you’ve been invited to stay in France by colleagues or business partners or you want to attend or take part in trade fairs, talks or conferences, this is possible by applying for a short-stay visa.

The visa will be valid in the Schengen area or a French, or non-European area, depending on your destination and will mean you can visit France for your whole stay, as long as it’s not over 90 days.
