We’re extending an open invitation for you to come to France to join, launch or invest in a French startup. Get on the fast track with us!


“The French tech ecosystem has been growing rapidly. And many French startups have chosen to work in English and hire foreign talent. Tech talent is becoming a global talent pool, so this visa scheme is essential for the future of the French tech ecosystem.” 

The French Tech Visa is a simplified, fast-track scheme for non-EU startup employees, founders and investors to obtain a residence permit for France. 


What are the benefits?

  • Family-friendly. Your visa automatically extends to your spouse and minor dependent children. After all, no (wo)man is an island.
  • Valid for four years — and renewable.
  • Diploma agnostic. Almost every startup visa scheme in the world has diploma requirements. Ours does not.
