French accreditation

Those of you working as freelance journalists here in France - do you have French accreditation, or a press pass or are you a member of a union here? What and how, please!

Many thanks


I have run into problems with this as often you need to be a member of the union etc... I email the press dept directly and explain I'm foreign. Usually works and once you're foot is in the door you have references to point to.

Hi Marijke,

Thanks for your reply - am ok on the tax and enterprise side of it all, I'm looking for advice on the journalistic bit - getting a press pass etc if you are freelance.
