How to obtain an entry Visa for France

Any Oblate who has been officially enrolled for the program given by the EMIC in Aix-en-Provence, and who needs a Visa to enter France, should write to the Superior in Aix at least two months before the commencement of the program.

That person should send to the Superior of EMIC, by e-mail, the following documents : a recommendation from his Major Superior, a letter of commitment stating that he will leave French territory before the expiration of the Visa, a copy of the page in his passport containing his personal details, the date of his first vows, a copy of his return air ticket, the postal address and the telephone number at which he can be contacted.

After receiving all of the above-mentioned documents, the superior of the EMIC requests a letter of invitation which will be sent by express courier mail to the interested party. This letter is to be presented to the consulate in order to obtain the visa.
