Family of refugees in France

Family members of a refugee living in France may apply for a family reunification visa at the French Embassy in Addis Ababa through the France-Visa portal.

Family reunification appointments can only be scheduled on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons.

To apply for family reunification, the refugee in France must send his/her registration certificate to OFPRA (French Office for Refugees) with his/her personal identification number. The family members must prove the link with the refugee living in France and provide identity documents.

At the end of the procedure and if visas are issued, a laissez-passer is produced.

The laissez-passer is an official document issued by the French consulate that can only be used once to return to France. This is a temporary document that is valid for 30 days. The family reunificationvisa is affixed to the back of the laissez-passer.
