PACS + Work Visa Help


(Jennifer Bourdeau) #1

Hi all!



I was hoping someone might be an expert on PACS and Visa’s for France because I am not getting very direct answers at the prefecture.



I PACSed with my French boyfriend a couple months ago, as I thought it would help me obtain a work visa and extend my long-stay visa (I’m American). The PACs was very simple as I’ve lived in France and with him for over a year and I also obtained a French MBA degree. But now I’m not so sure if the PACS does anything to help me.



Can I obtain a work visa with PACS or do I need to be married? How do I do this?



Also, After my long-stay student visa expires in September, will PACS provide a visa extension?



Thanks for any help/advice offered!
