I am an Australian citizen living in Australia applying for a French Visa. It is a work visa, irrelevant which one. During my application process I must provide a phone contact from my current employment. My question is will the French consulate in Sydney actually contact my work place?? Has this happened to anyone?

    What kind of visa? Most Australians who come to France do so without visa, just a stamp in the passport on arrival.

    That is why I ask, as a work visa should be more at home on Expatriates.

    As it's a work visa, this question is better suited to Expatriates. And it may not be irrelevant which work visa you're applying for: it's entirely possible that French authorities investigate applicants for some categories of visa more closely than others.

    @gstorto but those posted to consular missions in English speaking countries will indeed speak English. Consulates also typically employ local staff, too.
