All students attending NYU Paris must obtain a Long-Stay Student Visa before traveling to France (unless you are an EU, EEA, or Swiss citizen traveling on a valid EU, EEA, or Swiss passport). If you do not obtain the correct visa, you will not be permitted to enroll in NYU Paris for a semester or academic year away.
The French visa process is a two step process. You must complete the Campus France online process before applying for a visa.
If you do not have a passport or need to renew yours, use an expedited method to obtain it immediately. OGS will not be able to request the necessary immigration documents for you until you have a valid passport.
PLEASE NOTE: Per immigration regulations, all immigration documents (NYU support letters, visas, residence permits, etc.) will reflect the information indicated in your passport. If you have been admitted to study at an NYU site abroad and are in the process of changing your name, gender, or any biographical information on your passport, we encourage you to complete that process before applying for a visa. If timing will not allow for this, we recommend that you wait to formalize these changes until you have returned from your semester or academic year away. Please contact OGS if you have any questions.
Once you have your visa, you're ready to go. Please upload a copy of your visa to OGS via your Enrollment Portal.
