Settle in France

Living in France : Preparing for your arrival in France

This document, developed by the Ministry of the Interior (immigration management, assistance for immigrants and nationality) is just the first step of the integration process. It helps you to have a better understanding of how French society, which is founded on republican values, functions and is organised.

In particular, it describes the formalities that need to be completed prior to your departure and the documents required for the procedures that need to be done once you arrive in France. The booklet also provides useful information about living in France in order to facilitate the integration of all and to share what unites everyone who lives in France, whether they are French or foreigners.
