The number of applications for France Visa increased by 15% in 2018 in comparison with 2017 said the envoy. This was underpinned by 43% plus growth in applications from Consulate of Puducherry /South India said, Ziegler.
The striking upsurge demonstrates that France is increasingly becoming popular with Indians said the French Ambassador. The nation is now the #1 destination in Europe for Indian travellers, he added.
French Ambassador to India Alexandre Ziegler said that this is just the start of a trend. We are very privileged to witness this increase in the arrival of Indian tourists. It is our priority to ease Indian tourism in the nation, he said.
The Embassy of France has been offering Visas within 48 hours since 2015 said the Envoy. The Minister of Foreign Affairs and Europe in France highlighted that Indian travellers are a priority. We will develop expertise in France to welcome Indian travellers said the Minister, added the Ambassador.
A seminar will be held soon in Paris with French professionals, as quoted by the Travel Manorama Online. This will be focussing on welcoming tours, Indian weddings, and MICE – Exhibitions, Conferences, Incentives, and Meetings.
Professional tours indeed account for more than 30% of the Indian tourists said, Alexandre Ziegler. We are also aware that France is capable of attracting more Indian weddings, said the Envoy.
