France waives airport transit visa for Indians
July 28 (TravelAndy): Indian passport holders will no longer need a transit visa for transiting through airports in France.
“I’m pleased to announce that, with effect from 23rd July 2018, holders of Indian passports will no longer require an Airport Transit Visa (ATV) while transiting through the international zone of any airport in France,” tweeted Alexandre Ziegler, the ambassador of France to India.
People need airport transit visa if they are transiting through the international zone of an airport in the Schengen area.
This is positive news for Indian citizens because Paris is a big airline hub with thousands of passengers transiting through it every day on their way to destinations across the world.
