France implements deposit requirement for non-EU student visa applicants


France has introduced a new visa requirement for non-European Union student visa applicants: a mandatory deposit. This deposit, intended to cover potential expenses during their stay in France, is refundable under certain conditions. The exact amount of the deposit has not been specified, leading to uncertainty among prospective students.
The refundable nature of the deposit is contingent on several factors. Students who depart as planned, renew their permits, or change their visa category are eligible for a refund. However, failure to comply with departure conditions can result in the forfeiture of the deposit.
