Work permit approval duration

Hi there,

I have a quick question - I'm currently in the midst of applying for a work visa in Paris. It's basically a transfer from the office I'm in now (Singapore) to it's HQ in Paris. I just wanted to find out if there's anyone out there who is or has gone through a similar process to shed some light.

the process is having it approved by DIRECCTE  >> Appointment with French consul in Singapore for authorisation to work in France

It is said that the approval process should last 1-2 months - it's been exactly 2 months but my team has not received any news from DIRECCTE. Can I find out if this is normal? I've no idea how long this process will take. Hope some people can share their experiences if so. Looking forward to hear!

Cheers,
A.N

Hi Anna,

I am in the same boat. Have you receive any latest news from DIRECCTE?

Randy

Hey Randy,

nope nothing yet. how long have you been waiting for it?

Anna

Hi Anna,

For me, it has been almost two months. Did your team contact DIRECCTE for an update?

It should be any news within two months.

Randy

Hey Randy,

yes that was what i was told, 2 months. However this being said it's been almost 4 months with no news yet, My team did contact DIRECCTE and they just said that they have received the application but it's still being processed. Have heard the same for a couple of other people where it can take up to 4 months. Have you received an update since?

Cheers,
Anna
