Short stay Visa to attend retake exams
I write this with great disappointment. I am a student in a Business school in France. I was studying there from 2013 - 2014. After completing all my final exams; I came back to India for the Christmas vacation in 2014. I have a few papers which I should clear in order to obtain my graduation. I have received all the necessary documents from my school clearly mentioning that I have to attend my retake examination and explaining why it is important. But the consulate has refused me a visa for several times now even though I had all the right documents and reason. I find this unfair and cruel. If they won't give a visa to write retake exams, how students like me could obtain our degree?. If they cannot give visa to complete my education, why they even approved my visa at the first time. It completely doesn't make any sense.
The French and Europeans get to travel around the world whenever they want without any major problem. but these consulates give us a hard time over such crucial reason is unfair. People travelling to other countries like Canada and even US don't seem to have this much trouble in case they have to return for retakes.
I am writing this to share my unfortunate experience and also to know if it is just me or are there anyone else who have suffered similar problem with obtaining their french visa.

For your information I say that I am not paid by the French Government. I have been doing benevolent work since a longtime as a lawyer. If you have some matter pending with the French General consulate, you can question the same in this site. The public may see and comment like me and not necessarily the staff of the French consulate general, I hope you will understand and stop with this. Yours sincerely

Excessive delay in processing of student visa
Respected Consul General/sir/Madam,

It is with a lot of anxiety that I write this. I submitted my application to the Pudicherry consulate more than a month ago on 4th July. I have applied for a long stay student visa and will be heading to INSEAD.The class starts on 23rd Aug and my flight is booked for 21st Aug. I have even embarked on my sabbatical with Shell, my employer in the hope that this would happen and no issue was raised by campus France during my interview with them.
I have been constantly following up with VFS everyday and the consulate as such doesn't encourage visa related calls. So I have no way of explaining my situation to them as well. I would be grateful if you could please process my visa at the earliest or at least let me know if there is an issue with my application. I really hope to have your consideration. My ref number: FRCH/040717/0006/01

Reg. Delay in Issuing long stay Visa
Dear Sir,

I have applied for long stay visa (spouse visa for scientist) from VFS application centre, Kochi on 21st June 2017 and my application has been forwarded to French Consulate on 23rd June 2017. So far I have not heard any information regarding the status of my visa application. My travel date to France is very close, I have booked the flight ticket on 22 August 2017.

Please let me know where I can avail further information regarding my Visa, and what I have to do in order to receive my visa very soon.

Thanks in Advance

With regards
