What is Proof of Accommodation and Why I Need it?

You will need to prove that you have a place to stay in France for the duration of your visit. If you don’t have any reservations, this can be a challenge. Thankfully, there are some easy ways around this issue. In this article I’ll cover everything related to proving that you have accommodation while applying for your Schengen visa:

Proof of Accommodation

  • Your accommodation must be booked and paid for. You must have a reservation for the whole period of your stay in France, including any extra nights. For example, if you are staying in France for 12 days, you need to have a reservation for all 12 nights of your trip (including the first night).
  • Your accommodation must be in the same city where you are applying.

Only “Specific” Proof of Accommodation will Work

  • It must be in your name.
  • It must be for the dates of your stay.
  • It must be for the place you are staying (home, flatshare, or hostel).
  • The proof can only be issued by a third party, such as an employer or university/school.
  • The proof should state clearly that you are going to France during this time period and where/how long you will stay there (if it is not stated on the document, then I would recommend emailing them with requests).

A Hotel Reservation is a Proof of Accommodation

If your trip to France is for business, you need to provide proof of accommodation (a document that proves that you have a place to stay while in France). If your trip is for tourism or leisure, you do not need proof of accommodation.

Let’s explore the difference between these terms:

  • Proof of Accommodation – a document that proves that you have a place to stay while in France. In other words, if you are going on holiday and staying at a friend’s house for free then there is no need for any form of “proof” as your friend has already provided their address as part of their invitation letter. On the other hand, if they don’t have enough space and so they offer their bathroom floor as an alternative then it would be wise to book somewhere else or make arrangements before traveling out here with us!
  • Proof Of Residence – this shows where someone lives permanently e.g., lease agreement or bank statements showing payments being made regularly into an account opened under same name etcetera.”
