I am a British citizen working for the Bahrain Government. My Bahraini boss is invited to an official function in Paris. I am asked to enquire about what sort of visa he will require (e.g. short term diplomatic). I try to email them but was given an incorrect address (gov, not gouv). When I phoned the woman back twice she said the email was correct and put the phone down on me. Then there was an exchange of about 6 emails as I attempted to find out if there had been an official invitation. It finished with the visa section telling me my attitude was unacceptable and they would inform my department. Rude, unhelpful and unprofessional. I deal with visas to Schengen (Italy, Germany and France), UK, USA, Canada, China and Australia. I have never encountered such rudeness from other Embassies. VFS Global who deal with certain countries(including France)are very good but I wish luck to anyone who has to deal with the Embassy visa department directly. It's a pity as I like France and the French. Other Bahrainis I work with have reported similar rudeness,so it's not just me.

Appointment - It is really a nightmare
Trying to get an appointment, either the phones are completely off tone, busy, or no dial tone otherwise when we do speak to someone they say all appointments full call tomorrow. It is over a month trying to get an appointment. Something really requires to be done regarding this. A online appointment system will be much appropriate.

Dear sir/madam.,
I would like to know if you conduct the TEF in the embassy or maybe a cultural center or not. If you do please provide me with the details, and if not please advise me on where to take the test.
Dr. Hoda
