Immigration and Nationality Law for France

France has traditionally been a country with a fairly open border policy, but there have been recent efforts, as reflected in a July 2006 law, to restrict the immigration of unskilled workers and persons who would become a burden on the French State. Recent legislation has made French nationality requirements via marriage more difficult. Considerable discretionary powerhas been given to the French Consulates in their decisions to grant or deny visas.

There has however been a streamlining of procedures for entry of professionals and group-level transfers to France.

  • The need for an entry permit
