Moving to France

This section is no longer updated and remains here for historical reasons. We are getting fewer and fewer questions regarding moving to France; updating these pages would require a huge effort, one that is not justified as our logs show a dwindling visitor count for this particular area. By all means peruse these pages but don't rely on the information unless you verify it with a French embassy or consulate.

This section provides information for those who are moving to France or are at least contemplating the possibility of living and working here. The different pages may be read in any order, though we recommend reading the introduction first.
