I moved to South France with my wife in August 2018. We’ve been here 6 months this month, and I’m not too sure what next steps are. We’re planning to be permanent residents.
I’m registered as a self-employed Micro-Entrepreneur - have my own SIREN number and all that. My wife does not work at all (living the dream!).
Now we’ve been here for 6 months, and given Brexit is looming, I’m wondering if there’s anything we should be doing in regards to registering? Do we need to register with the Mairie, or get any sort of residency card?
How does healthcare work for my wife, as she doesn’t work at all? We’re a bit naive to everything I guess. Probably worth mentioning our french is tres mauvais at the moment! (We’re working on it!).
Also, side point: Is everything like this still done locally with a Mairie or another French prefect? Feels like it would be easier (for a bad French speaker like me!) to do this sort of stuff online.
Thanks for any advice!
