Vous Ne Pouvez Pas Entrer: France Suspends Schengen Visa

France suspends the Schengen agreement and imposes border controls.

The move by the French government is temporary and the country will suspend its participation in the Schengen agreement for a month starting November 13

During this period, foreign citizens, who have a Schengen visa, won’t be able to enter France without a French visa. This means if people have planned holidays in France, they should now apply for a French national visa in addition to a Schengen visa.

The precaution was taken to decrease the likelihood of a terrorist threat or public disorder prior to the UN Conference on Climate Change in Paris, French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said.
