Foolproof French Visas
The process of applying for a visa to relocate to France is a minefield. Knowing what kind of visa is most appropriate for your situation and getting the most up-to-date information on how to apply can be difficult when there's so much information up there and it's hard to know what's accurate and up to date. Plus, the regulations and procedures change every few years, so relying on someone else's prior experience can be risky.
Fortunately, I've been helping people move to France since 2012, and I've successfully guided hundreds of clients through the shifting requirements and constantly moving goalposts of getting a French visa. Whether you're planning to spend a year, or want to move permanently, this book will help you to understand each available visa type, how to know if you're eligible for it, and what you need to do to apply successfully.
This book is for nationals of countries that do NOT have special bilateral agreements with France for visa applications. Citizens of Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Hong Kong, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Russia, South Korea, Taiwan, the United Kingdom (pending Brexit), the United States, or Uruguay will benefit especially.
