Effective 1 March 2019, talent passport (“passeport talent”) applicants who have been issued a three-month D visa will now be issued a six-month temporary residence permit (“Autorisation Provisoire de Séjour” or APS) on application for an initial residence permit, post arrival in France.
Effective 18 February 2019, all foreign nationals in France holding unverified VLS-TS long-stay visas must verify their visa via a new online portal.
On 5 September 2018, Law No. 2018-771 on “freedom to choose one’s professional future” was signed by the French president, codifying several important changes to the rules for workers posted to France.

We are pleased to share this article describing the recent increase in applications for French citizenship by British nationals.

Thanks for sharing your experience, Fiona!
We’re very pleased to announce that we’ve added the new Intra-Company Transfer Permit (EU Directive 2014/66) processes for Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, France, Italy, Netherlands, Bulgaria and Romania to Immiguru.
The EU ICT Permit, established by the ICT Directive 2014/66/EU, is intended to be a consistent European Union-wide temporary work and residence permit allowing third-country nationals in certain positions to be assigned from a company outside the EU to a company within the EU in the same group, and to easily move and work within the EU. The United Kingdom, Denmark and Ireland have opted out of this directive.
Despite a November 2016 deadline to transpose the ICT Directive into national law, by September 2017 several EU Member States had not yet fully implemented the directive. Austria is expected to implement the Directive by 1 October 2017.
Many thanks to all our partners who have helped us with this!
