To obtain a visa to enter France from the French Consulate General in London in order to marry your fiancée, you will have to send her a copy of your birth certificate in order for her to arrange formalities with the local town hall.Once these formalities have been accomplished in France by your future bride, and if there is no opposition to your marriage, she will end you a "certificat de publication des bans" issued by the mairie which you will have to show the French Consulate along with the following documents to apply for your visa:• Copy of your bride to be's national ID card or passport ;• A letter certifying that she will accommodate you at her place when you are in France• Copies of her last 3 pay slips or tax returns ;• A letter from her bank certifying that she has a fully operational bank account with regular credits and debits• A copy of her lease/or deeds if she is the owner of her home. Copies of utility and telephone bills.You should contact the French General Consulate in London ASAP to make an appointment once you have all these documents. You should also check their website as requirements vary quite often.
Thank for you reply but I still need some more information regarding visa.
She will need a certificate from her father that she lives at his home and that you will be invited to stay there. Plus his lease or deeds of property.The status of your visa to stay in the UK is irrelevant to French authorities (provided it is still valid when you apply for your French visa, other wises you would have to return to Pakistan before you can apply). You need to apply for your visa well in advance to avoid any trouble. French authorities will want to be have all elements proving that you will indeed marry your fiancée and that you will have enough financial means to live in France without the help of any welfare assistance. However there is no way anyone can assure you that the visa will be granted. The issuance of a visa by consular authorities is considered a privilege and is not legally a right.
