Following Brexit, if you are a UK citizen without an EU passport, you will need to apply for a long-stay visa if you wish to spend more than 90 days in the EU out of any 180 day time-frame.

The process to obtain your visa is an administrative exercise and we can put you in touch with someone who specialises in arranging french visas for British citizens if you’d rather someone managed the process for you.

The basic criteria you will need to meet are:

 You need to begin the application process more than 90 days before moving to France

 You will need to prove that you have somewhere to stay when you arrive in France.  That could be:

                   - staying with relatives or friends

                   - producing a rental contract 

                   - owning a property in France

 You will need to prove you are financially sustainable with a steady income of at least the minimum salary.  The minimum salary in France is €1231 per month per person

 You must have private health insurance in place for the duration of your visa.  This must be arranged prior to submission of your application.  

 If you plan to move to France permanently, you will need to become a French tax resident

If you would like any assistance in applying for your french visa, or would like to speak to an english-speaking health insurance broker, so just let us know and we’d be happy to put you in touch.
