Burkina Faso Visa FAQs

When is the best time to apply for my Burkina Faso visa?
The best time to apply for your Burkina Faso visa is 1-2 months before your travel date. However, if you are running short on time, we may be able to process your visa on a faster service at the Embassy’s discretion.

Do I have to send you my passport to get a Burkina Faso visa? Is it safe to send a passport?
Yes. You will need to send your actual passport, not a copy of it. The Burkina Faso visa is stamped on your passport and will become one of your passport pages. Visa request cannot be processed without your original passport. Because of the importance of your passport, we strongly suggest that you send your application using our secure collection service.

Sample of the Tourist Travel Requirements for a Burkina Faso Visa for Australian Citizens

  1. Personal Appearance

    The French Consulate requires applicant's from your particular country to apply for a visa in person. CIBTvisas is unable to assist in this instance. Please contact the Consulate for further information.

    All applications will have to be lodged in person at the French Consulate in Sydney by the applicant/s.

    Please visit the French Consulate's website at http://www.ambafrance-au.org/-Visas-new - to review the current visa requirements and to make a compulsory appointment.

    *Visas for persons travelling to French Polynesia and/or New Caledonia on board a cruise ship or for a group conference can apply for the visa by post.

    Please note that as from 02/08/2010, the Republic of Greece officially represents France in South Australia, Victoria and Western Australia to issue Schengen visas for stays up to 90 days (French Polynesia and New Caledonia are not covered under the Schengen Agreement and must be lodged through the French Consulate Sydney). Under the terms of the agreement, the French Consulate is unable to accept any Schengen visa application from residents in these 3 States, in any circumstances whatsoever. Any attempt to lodge your application with the Consulate-General of France in Sydney will be rejected. Greek authorities have been granted full jurisdiction to issue Schengen visas on behalf of France and any issue (including processing time) must be dealt with them directly. Exceptions: Iranian researchers are required to apply with the Consulate-General of France in Sydney.
