On a positive note – we visited the prefecture this morning to pick up our titre de sejour – all went well and we were finished by 930!  I have sent copies of everything to Maria but I wanted to let you know directly how helpful she was in supporting us (& also Leda during our application visit)!  We had heard that the prefecture can sometimes be difficult but in our case, the process went very smoothly, in no doubt due to Maria’s preparation and thoroughness!

Hi Home Conseil office staff, Thank you so much for your assistance during our movement to France. Your staff member Maria really came through handleing the paper work, proving information to go through process step by step and the extra effort and patience during this time was really appreciated. I'm going to recommend your agency in future to people who seek immigration assistance.

I had an excellent experience with Home Conseil Relocation. All the professional contacts I had were satisfactory, but especially the responsible for my process (Clara) exceeded my expectations. She was always fast and very clear in her information, and with that I had no issue in any of the processes with the French administration (visas, resident permits and driving licenses – for all my family).

Dear Marie-Laure: Thank you for everything. I am fully aware of how important Home Conseil services are. Your help was precious! It is in fact not easy for a foreigner to get into the system (to rent a house, activate services that come with it, etc). I hope you keep up the good work and that the next employees feel as warmly welcomed as I did. Please pass on my thanks to everyone involved. Best regards, Rita

YES- you can visit France for 15 days max, for leisure or business purposes only (i.e. business meetings, discussions, etc.).
Yes- If she/he benefits from the accompanying family procedure, depending on the immigration process applicable to the employee. He/she will be entitled to work after collection of the long stay ‘D’ visa issued by the French Consulate in your country of origin and provided she/he obtains a resident permit afterwards.
No, it is not possible to use a French work permit in another EU member state based on the fact that each EU State is sovereign in this area. Therefore, it is at the discretion of each State to issue a work permit valid in this own country.

If you signed a French work contract, you must register to French health insurance (=Assurance Maladie) so that you can benefit from social protection.

In order to register, and depending on your place of birth, an apostil or legalization of your birth certificate can be demanded.

This authentication is therefore not a requirement for the work permit or resident permit application but it is compulsory for receiving the French health insurance card (=carte vitale).
