Visa for France

Depending on your stay in France, you can apply for a long or short-stay visa for France. It is important to know that French visa policies are not the same for the entire territory. For instance, some citizens might be subject to different vis policies for French Overseas Territories, French Overseas Departments, or Regions or for French European Territory. Citizens from USA, Mexico, Australia, Japan, Venezuela, South Korea or Singapore must apply for a French visa if they want to enter and stay in French Overseas Departments or Regions. One of our immigration lawyers in France can tell you more about the type of visa you need. They can provide legal advice for foreigners wanting to visit or relocate to France.

Temporary and permanent residence in France

Self-employed, workers, or students from non-EU/EEA countries must observe the visa and residence policies of France. The permanent residence is granted at the time you obtain the “Carte de resident”, that allows you to legally live and work in France. You may note that residence permits are available for up to 10 years in France, having the possibility of renewing this status. In the case of a temporary stay in France, a provisional stay permit is issued by the authorities, with a validity of one month. If things change with activities or work you perform in France, you can apply for a permanent residence permit. Feel free to talk to our team of immigration lawyers in France and find out more.

Company relocation in France

Foreign investors who want to relocate the business to France must observe a series of regulations and conditions imposed, mainly in matters of documents. First of all, company owners must de-register the firm in the country of origin and then choose the proper structure for business in France. The whole process of company relocation to France can be overseen by one of our immigration lawyers in France, so feel free to contact us.
