PM Modi had announced on his visit to France

PM Modi came on a visit to France last month, during which he announced that students who are pursuing master's degree will now be given a five-year-long post-study visa and also said that the last time I came to France So it was decided that the students studying here should be given work visa for two years after their studies. Now, it has been decided that students who are pursuing a master's degree in France will be given a five-year long-term work visa after their studies.

If you have spent one semester then you will get visa for five years

Giving details of the programme, the French Embassy said Indian students who have a master's degree or above and have spent at least one semester studying in France are eligible for a five-year short-term Schengen visa.

French Ambassador Emmanuel Lenain said that our teams are doubling down to implement the decisions taken by President Macron and Prime Minister Modi in Paris for the benefit of the students. He said that France has always been an inclusive and diverse country, which is keen to share its rich cultural heritage and world-class education opportunities with Indian students. Having said that, my message to Indian students is that France will always be your friend, and we will do everything possible to ensure that you have a wonderful educational and living experience in our country.
