Airport transit visa (VTA)

Airport transit visa is a visa that allows the holder to transit through the international zone of a French airport with no access to the Schengen space, before flying on to the final destination outside the Schengen area.

Special case of a transit through two different airports / terminals in Paris: you are allowed to remain in the international zone, but not to go through Immigration control.
