France offers a myriad of visas, each designed for different purposes of travel. As a result, the eligibility criteria are diverse and with every application being judged on its own merits individually, there are a huge number of variables that both individual applicants and companies alike need to be aware of and ready to work with.
As France is part of the European Union and the Schengen area, a valid visa and/or residence permit allows for travel around a much greater area than just the mainland itself. This does mean that for an immigration lawyer France presents a greater number of challenges through its immigration and citizenship applications than many other nations.
It is always recommended that French visa applicants work with a specialist team of immigration lawyers to help manage the process; particularly where there is a business risk to a visa application not finding success. Total Law can help – call us on +44 (0)333 305 9375 to learn more.
Why Use a France Immigration Lawyer?
The most common reasons for receiving a visa refusal are not understanding the relevant eligibility criteria (and therefore applying for the wrong visa type) and providing insufficient or inaccurate supporting documentation. Working with a team of immigration lawyers allows for the best possible chance of fully understanding all aspects of the process, and so maximises the chance of success.
For businesses looking to obtain a France visa or residence permit for overseas professionals, the risk of not receiving the appropriate visa can cost a great deal of time and money – all impacting on the company’s bottom line.
It is critical, then, that application procedures are managed as effectively as possible to expedite professional talent to France as required. If you’re not successful in importing the most successful foreigners in your industry to France, your competition will be, so it’s best not to risk delay or decline.
What Are The Typical Costs Of Hiring An Immigration Lawyer For France Immigration?
The French immigration system offers a wide variety of visas for travel – including short stay visas, long stay visas, a myriad of business and work visa options and residence permit choices.
Every visa class holds its own eligibility criteria and all visa applications are examined on an individual basis. This means that the chances of a successful outcome to a visa application is dependent on the person/s applying and their given information.
As such, there is no one-size-fits-all fee package for clients of lawyers specialising in French visa applications. All projects are managed end-to-end on a bespoke basis. Call us for a tailored quote based on your needs, on +44 (0)333 305 9375.

Deportation is commonly misunderstood, but only actually applies where foreign nationals have been prosecuted in another country. Immigration lawyers can navigate such processes, but this is a separate area of immigration law to visas.
Some visa classes do afford family reunification rights, which allows for the visa holder to bring their spouse and dependents with them to the country. Family are subject to their own applications being accepted.
