Dear all, I am trying to get the Country borders of France from open street map using overpass turbo as follows:

[out:json]; rel[admin_level=2]["ISO3166-1"="FR"]; out geom;

is there a way to only get the country border on the European continent (Main Country borders), excluding all the hundreds of french colonial islands around the world? Thanks

The Area of France in Europe (including Corse) is called France métropolitaine.

So your overpass query would look like:

[out:json]; rel[admin_level=3][name="France métropolitaine"]; out geom;

See: http://overpass-turbo.eu/s/1nOq

(here is the corresponding nominatim query: https://nominatim.osm.org/ui/search.html?q=France+m%C3%A9tropolitaine that will get you the same relation https://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/1403916#map=5/42.488/15.403 )
