We want to fight against these illegal practices, with all the means at our disposal, with TLS contact. This is why we have decided to suspend all family reunification appointments for the next two weeks, in particular to reallocate the freed up slots and offer more appointments”, indicated this diplomat, while recalling that the taking of appointment is free.
