Hi, am Lloyd 19 year old From Papua New Guinea.
Am an international student I have no assets nothing to prove for visa. I am studying in Australia for a year and working also. I found out about the legion on news and I learnt anyone can join and the process of signing up was simple. My dream is to be in a real army and hopefully see combat. I am currently saving up money just to get a Visa to French. Is there a financial requirement I need to meet for the short stay visa. I have only € 12,000 in Bank Account, is this enough to prove for a tourist visa. THANKS. And If I apply for a visa should I declare to the embassy my intention of joining the legion or just say am a tourist visiting. Thanks again.

Hello Junilorgarry and welcome to the forum. No need to tell the French embassy that you are going to join the legion. I believe that you get a 90 days tourist visa on arrival.

OP, I know some foreign nationals have to put up a large bond to get a visa , not sure about you going to the EU , don't use an immigration agent to find out as they will steal your money, ask an Aussie travel agent what you need to do to get a tourist visa, I'm you will be able to apply on line,good luck.

It is probably better to ask about visas at the French embassy.
