10.Visa to marry a French citizen in France

The specific visa in order to marry a French citizen in France no longer exists.

If you plan to marry a French citizen in France but do not intend to settle in France after the marriage, you should apply for a short stay visa for a personal visit to France (marriage). This visa, if granted, will not allow you to settle in France nor can it be changed to a different visa once in France. Please check the "Short stay visa section" for further information.

If you plan to marry a French citizen in France and then settle there as well, you should apply for a "Long stay visitor" visa. When the marriage has been celebrated, you must request to have your visa changed afterwards into "a Spouse of French citizen" resident card at the local French City Hall (prefecture) where the marriage was performed. Please check the "Long stay visa section" for more information.
