Long Stay Visa process for French Polynesia.

What a worldwind of paperwork and a few hassles these last few weeks, preparing us for our Long Stay Visas for the French Polynesian islands, leaving this March. This will enable us to explore the 4 archepelegos for an entire year. Kind of stressful though, as we need to be interviewed and approved at the French Consulate in Mexico City. (and turn in our passports-eeek) We have also joined a rally type group called ‘Pacific Puddle Jump’ which provides safety and discount features as well as a few guides for a basic understanding of French Polynesia’s fascinating history and rich cultural traditions.

But…all work doesn’t mean no play, we still know how to have fun!!
