A Road Map
When I began my immigration journey to France back in 2012, there were no real roadmaps of any kind.  Information from the French government itself was spotty, particularly in English, and blogs addressing the challenges of applying for a visa were virtually nonexistent.  Now that I'm on the other side of the process, I can see that the entire process was probably challenging enough without having to document it.  Being a writer, I actually did document the process, partially for my own gratification (I love to write) but also to help anyone else who might come after me.  I like the idea of "sending the elevator back down" for someone else.  I couldn't have anticipated what happened next: people started to ask to hire me to consult on the visa process.
What this course offers is all of the information I would give to a one-on-one client, but if I had an entire day to speak with them (along with a leisurely French lunch or dinner).  After taking this course you will:
  • Have a grasp of the basic mentality of French bureaucracy and replace your fear and uncertainty with confidence and strength.
  • Be fully briefed on the materials and documents you need to successfully obtain a visa, and even more importantly, renew one.
  • Know the things that you have to bring to your appointment that are not on the official list.
  • Know what you need to do as soon as you hit the ground in France, and what you'll need to do in the twelve months to better integrate into a life in your new country.
  • Have some insider tips based on my own successes and failures.
One of a kind
While there are many who have gone through this process with at least as much success as I have, few have taken the time to document, and even fewer have dealt with hundreds of people over the years who have come to my website with questions at every level.  I've had to find and share resources which has made what I'm carrying in my head all the more valuable, and why it was so important for me to finally empty that information out into a course that would be useful and valuable to those who now had access to platforms like Udemy so they can obtain knowledge that simply wasn't available when I went through the process.  I want to put you ahead of the game.
Whether you just want to test out the possibility of living abroad in France or if you know you'll live there forever, when you're not an EU national you have to obtain a visa, and this course will help you obtain one of the easiest ones to get: a long term visitor visa.
Who this course is for:
  • English speaking persons interested in learning how to obtain a French long-term residence visa
  • Persons who have already started their visa application, but are confused by conflicting information on the internet
  • Persons who have already obtained a visa but aren't sure what to do after that
