The France guide

Nationals of the EU- EEA can live, work or set up a business in France with very few formalities and full access to the labour market. Some restrictions apply to several types of jobs and trades such as jobs in the army and in the legal sector. Given the high unemployment rate in France, the French government seeks to preserve its national labour market from foreign workers. Therefore, finding a job in France can be challenging for non-French or non-European citizens.

If you are planning to move to France, you are probably wondering whether you need a visa or not. In general, foreign nationals require a visa to travel to France, unless they come from the European Union, European Economic Area or Switzerland.

Moving to France with a pet is a relatively straightforward and streamlined process. The French Ministry of Agriculture sets out a clear set of guidelines regarding the processes involved as well the types of animals which can be brought into France. One essential point to bear in mind is that many breeds allowed in certain parts of the world are banned, so be sure to check beforehand whether it will be possible for you to bring your pet over before making a firm commitment to moving to France.

Whether you intend to move to France for a few months or indefinitely, you will find yourself immersed in a country defined by its diversity, culture and history. In recent years, accessing France has become easier, through the development of visa schemes for entrepreneurs and by the profusion of opportunities for those who are highly-skilled. Being part of the Schengen zone is also a strong selling point for France, since a single visa can now allow you to discover a whole host of destinations including Germany, Italy, Spain and Portugal, to name just a few.

The greater Toulouse area covers around 120km² and is served by a comprehensive transportation network, which includes buses, a subway and tramways. The city's large student population and vibrant nightlife have also given rise to an efficient night bus system, so rest assured that you will not be left stranded after a long night out.

Love France, learn French

6 years ago

You've found it! The most instructive, educational, at times funny, at others serious, apolitical blog on loving France and learning French. I'm a British expat living in Perpignan for the last 15 years, and I want to share tips and tricks on how to enjoy life and travel here in France, country of fine wines, cheeses, fashion and the raised, arched eyebrow. If you're thinking of coming here to live, or just for a vacation or even a flying visit, then choose an article (or 4) and enjoy. If you do, then please subscribe to get your new blog in your inbox and rate the article as you see fit.
