Visa for family reunification – OFII
Your family has filed an application for family reunification in France.
To join your family in France as part of a family reunification, you can only file your case after transmission of the “CERFA” to our visa service by the prefecture or the competent Office français de l’immigration et de l’intégration (OFII). Here are the documents required :
1. A long-stay visa application form, completed on both sides, signed by the applicant.
2. A recent photograph, clear background
3. 65,000 FCFA in cash
4. Valid passport issued since less than 10 years, with a validity of at least three months beyond the requested visa, with at least two blank pages and photocopies of pages containing personal data.
5. National identity card or residence permits for non-Cameroonians.
6. Acts of civil original statement justifying the family relationship between the applicant and the (s) recipient (s) of family reunification.
Because of the too frequent cases of fraud to civil status, the visa may be issued only after authentication of documents. This procedure leads to a lengthening of instruction time up to eight months (2x4 month) according to regulatory notice to be given to you at the time of filing the visa application.
These delays are variable and beyond the control of the visa service that strives to get a quick response from local registry offices.

Warning : Please prepare a copy of the required documentation. No photocopies may be made on site. All of these documents will help to study your case. The Visa services can request additional information and check the authenticity of the documents produced. The presentation of a complete file does not necessarily mean the visa. The originals of the documents requested by the visa service must be presented at the visa service and may be required by the Border Police.
