Hi there! I’m new to this forum, so forgive me if I’ve posted this in the wrong place!
It looks like a majority of people in here are from the UK, I’m a bit further afield out in New Zealand so I think information about migrating to France seems more difficult to come by.
For the last year my partner and myself have been looking into the entrepreneur/profession libérale visa (outlined here)
Of course, Covid threw a spanner in the works and it’s going to be a while yet before we look again at applying, but I was curious if anybody in here has moved over using this?
We are both self employed, with full time contracts through the same company which are well over the minimum wage requirement, and have been doing so for a number of years. Additionally, we both speak some French (and I am 1/2 way through an undergrad/bachelors degree in the language) and I in particular have spent a number of summers based out of France for around ~3 months each time. So I feel somewhat prepared for the reality of relocating there.
However, knowing the small amount I know about French bureaucracy, I wonder if the visa requirements or process are more complicated than the government visa page lets on.
Would love to hear from anyone who’s gone down this path or looked more into this particular visa.
Thanks in advance!
