Obtaining your Long Stay Visa


Applying for your long stay visa (visa de long sejour) with the French Consulate office responsible for your region, is the first thing you should do once you have decided to move to France.

Most people plan at least one year ahead. The absolute minimum amount of time you should allow yourself for pre-move "to-do's" is 6 months.

It is, and rightly so, a very intimidating process.
