The 9 steps to request a French entrepreneur visa

First, thank you for being here! I hope you enjoyed yesterday’s mini-course. We saw the 4 different visas for entrepreneurs and how they fit into the 27 visas available to move to France. 

These are basically 27 opportunities to make your dream to move to France a reality! 

If you haven’t watched that video I invite you to see it if you want to know more but to summarize, these 27 visas are divided into 4 main categories:

  • the study visas
  • the family visas
  • the non-work visas
  • the work visas (among which you will find the 4 entrepreneur visas that we’ve detailed in the previous mini-course, they will allow you to run or continue your business in France).
