France long-term visa application

travel_exploreImmigration & Residency


All non-French citizens will encounter some form of bureaucracy during an extended trip to France. EU, EEA and Swiss nationals can stay in France for up to six months without a permit, and to stay longer after this limit, they just need to register with the local authorities. But for others, it is more difficult and requires a long-stay visa in France.

The France long-term visa application is mandatory for:
-Foreign spouse of a French citizen
-Foreign students studying in France
-Foreign workers, trainees and temporary workers
-Tourists with sufficient financial resources to earn a living

Our team of legal experts can help you with your application, working closely with the authorities and ensuring that your documents are submitted properly.
