I realise that I have not (intentionally) written a post about how to get a visa when planning a move to Paris. This is simply because I haven't dealt with this frustrating issue since I'm already a European citizen. But I understand that for many of you, this is a must before making the dream about moving to Paris come true.
I still know absolutely nothing about this so I'm definitely not the right person to be asking but what you could do is to check out this great, and very informative, post on the HiP Paris blog about moving to Paris as a non European citizen. Hopefully it'll clear a few things up for you! You'll find it here.
