What visa do I need?

    Thanks a lot for sharing this information about what visa do you need. I am very happy to have these details here. Even I am looking for some details about Marvel institute for ielts zirakpur, Mohali. I have heard a lot about this center and thinking to join this for my IELTS training. Is there anyone who has experience with them?

    Wwoofers are not getting paid for this work, this is just ecotourism. I am American with valid passport through 2020. Assuming I leave France area without invalidating Schengen Agreement (i.e. staying only 90 days within 180 day period within Schegen countries, obviously including France), I should not need a visa as far as I know.


    Is this correct? I have done my research and I cannot find any information on Americans needing visas, as long as they are not "working"  or violating Schengen agreement. Please let me know. I plan to wwoof in France starting beginning of May 2018.

    Hi Darius, thanks for reaching out. Somehow our team missed your comment posted earlier this year. I see that you wwoofed in may 2018 and we hope that you enjoyed your stay! I will answer your question anyway for your fellow Americans:

    U.S. citizens are allowed to travel to France for up to 90 days for tourist or business purposes without a visa, as long as your U.S. passport is valid for at least 3 months after your planned return to the United States.

    We will update the article above shortly to clarify the requirements.
