Tourist Visa to France

I am in a same sex relationship with a french national, we've known each other for 5 years and already in a relationship for 3 years, my girlfriend already went here in philippines and we discussed of how am i going to get a tourist visa, is having a letter of invitation will be a "plus" in getting a tourist visa? And is getting a tourist visa will be really hard for me since ive never been in other country?

Hello Fayelo,
Letter of invitation is one of the requirements to apply a tourist visa from Indonesia; where I come from..I don't know the requirements from Philippines, but if it is not listed, it's always a 'plus' if you have it. And the fact that you've never been out of your country will not define whether it will be easy or hard to get a tourist visa, all you need is at least provide every single documents your embassy will ask you. As addition, you could always provide a bank account statement and a sponsor letter (if these are not in the list).

Don't hesitate to ask more, i'll be available to share you my experience.
Good luck,

Gabrielle

Thank you for answering, this helps a lot since im really worrying for my visa application to be denied.

Hi Fayelo, does the application have a section for (something like) who you will be living with? Or perhaps who will cover your living needs? If so, put your girlfriend's info.
If you are worried about your visa being denied because of a same-sex relationship, please relax - France (as you probably know) has this codified in its culture.
I'm not really sure of this, but consider it perhaps? And investigate further? What about a visa with intent to marry/pacs... It's a thought, of course, no pressure ;-)
