Talent for France Challenge
French Tech refers to anyone working in or for French start-ups in France or abroad. Entrepreneurs in the first place, but also investors, engineers, designers, developers, large groups, associations, media, public operators, research institutes ... who are committed to the growth of start-ups on the one hand and their international influence on the other hand.
The French Tech Visa is a simplified, fast-track procedure for three types of international tech talent to obtain a residence permit known as the "Passeport Talent" ("Talent Passport")
The French Tech Visa is open to three categories of tech talent - startup founders, employees, and investors - and allows them to live and work in France.
It is valid for four years, on a renewable basis.
It is extended to immediate family members: spouses also receive residence permits authorizing them to live and work in France. Dependent children are authorized to live in France as well.
No additional work permit is required.
*Please note that citizens from the European Economic Area and Switzerland do not need a residence permit.
