Re: electrical qualifications in france

The fact remains that the OP would have to retrain and get French qualifications in order to be able to work legally with professional insurance coverage. No problem if his spoken and written French...

Re: Opening a French bank account

Hi again. Having reread an earlier thread, I'm wondering whether a high street bank would accept to open an account for a (non-French) person living at a friend's address?

Re: Opening a French bank account

I would add the Caisse d'Epargne to the list of local banks. Nothing against La Banque Postale, but when La Poste is on strike, the counter is also closed. FWIW and without wishing to denigrate the...

Re: French values

Maybe, as suggested by Cyrian earlier on, the present trend of this thread should be transferred to the TIO forum.
I'm relieved that no one has started a thread here on the recent event, where new...

Re: Moving to France and Residence Permit

Hi, and welcome to the forum!
In answer to your questions, I can only say that an AirBnB rental is insufficient to justify residence. By definition they are only short-term rentals, 90 consecutive...

Re: French values

OK, so Pétain surrended in 1940. I don't want to start a debate on the subject, but "as always" is offensive to the French in general. I may be overreacting, but OH lived through WWII in...
