Applying For Haiti Tourist Visit Visa from Paris

Haiti is an island nation that shares the Hispaniola island with the Dominican Republic. The country has a long history with France and is the only French speaking country in South America. That is why tourists from France should not have any issues communicating and moving around the ccountry. The country was recently struck by a massive earthquake which damaged the infrastructure and capacity of the country. However, the island is making its way back to recovery and French visitors can find functioning hotels and other historical buildings to visit. French adventurers can also experience the unique culture of the country which is not found any where else in the world because of the interesting mix of French and West African people. However, before making the leap and heading off to the country, travelers must get their paper work in order. This requires applying for visas and gaining other permits from the embassy located in Paris.
