A citizen of a foreign country who seeks to enter the United States generally must first obtain a U.S. visa, which is placed in the traveler’s passport, a travel document issued by the traveler’s country of citizenship or nationality.
France is a participant in the Visa Waiver Program (VWP) so most French citizens do not need a visa to travel. Please refer to ESTA for information on VWP.
Please note that the VWP/ESTA is a program of the Department of Homeland Security.
The Visa section of this website is all about U.S. visas for foreign citizens to travel to the United States. If you cannot find what you are looking for here, please visit Travel.State.gov for additional information.
Note: U.S. citizens do not need a U.S. visa for travel to the United States, but when planning travel abroad a U.S. citizen may need a visa issued by the embassy or consulate of the country they wish to visit.
Visa applications and interview scheduling are primarily facilitated by the third-party company: Applicant Service Centers. Visit their website for additional information on determining what visa type is best for you and how to apply.
