Geographic Location

Located in Western Europe bathed in the west by the Atlantic Ocean and to the south by the Mediterranean Sea, France is bordered in the south by Spain, to the southeast by Italy, to the east by Switzerland, Germany and Luxembourg, to the north by Belgium.

In summer, the time difference between Asia and France is 6 hours (from the last Sunday in March to the last Sunday in October).

Climate

The French climate is very diverse and varies from region to region.
There are 4 types of climates in France, namely the oceanic climate with a sub-category called “degraded oceanic climate”, the semi-continental, the Mediterranean and finally mountain climate. Each of these climates has very specific characteristics.

Language & Culture

Language

France considers French as a national and official language.
However, the linguistic reality is much more complex because the country has nearly 100 so-called regional languages ​​according to the official terminology, including around twenty on French territory (the majority of these languages ​​are therefore spoken in the overseas departments and regions).

Religion

Since the 1905 law on the separation of Church and State, France has experienced great religious diversity. In addition to the four religions recognized in 1905 (Catholicism, Reformed, Lutheran Protestantism and Judaism), France welcomes geographically and historically new religions. Thus, Islam, Buddhism, or even Orthodoxy now has their place in the French religious landscape. France is the European country with the largest number of Muslims, Jews and Buddhists.

Visa Requirement

To find out if your nationality requires a visa to enter France (a member state of the European Union), please inquire at the French Embassy in your home country.
