Working in France
The type of visa and whether one is needed is determined by a foreign national’s home country and the type of work they will do while in France. Citizens from the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA) don’t require a visa to work in France
Citizens from France, Antigua and Barbuda, Bahamas, Brazil, Canada, Israel, Japan, Mauritius, Mexico, St. Kitts and Nevis, Seychelles, Singapore, South Korea, the United States and Venezuela, who will be in France for 90 days or less, may enter the country for business purposes without a visa. However, the employer must have organized a valid work permit for the duration of the stay.
