    The France Immigration System Is Complex To Navigate

    Expanding your business into the French market from Australia can provide huge growth opportunities, but their complex visa and work permit application processes can be difficult to navigate.

    Additionally, the French system is highly regulated, with strict visa eligibility criteria, and mistakes can happen without informed guidance from an France immigration lawyer.

    In fact, data shows that 20% of French visa applications by foreign nationals faced refusal in 2022. The main reasons for rejection included incorrect paperwork or incomplete submissions.

    The French immigration procedures also involve nuances like minimum salary thresholds for intra-company transfers and skilled worker permits.

    Without expert advice on piecing together a strong visa application that ticks all boxes could affect your company expansion plans.

      How Much Does a French Immigration Lawyer Cost?

      Immigration to France cases and the expenses tied to hiring an immigration law firm can differ significantly. Each case is unique, meaning prices will differ based on individual circumstances.

      Determining factors include:

      • Case complexity for the business situation
      • Amount of documentation needing review
      • Likelihood of challenges requiring appeals

      Put simply – no two visa applications are identical, as some cases may require additional research or further consultations. For example, a large multinational company requiring 10+ skilled worker visas involves more resources than say, a small startup with simpler needs.

      So rather than a vague ballpark quote, we suggest booking a no-obligation advice session where we will discuss your Australia to France expansion needs, gauge specific requirements and potential issues, and provide an informed quote for bespoke guidance.

      This allows accurate cost indications tailored to your France immigration plans before spending commitments. Contact our team at Total Law by calling +44 (0)333 305 9375 or visiting our website to discuss your immigration matters concerning France and Australia.
