Listen to more details from an interview with Tracy on Riviera Radio 106.5FM.

Anyone who has relocated to another country would agree with me that the key word to remember is PLANNING. And whilst we may plan all the details of the move down to the last detail on our excel spreadsheets and note pads, the excitement of finding your dream home can sometimes be overshadowed when you are blocked in some of the French bureaucratic paperwork process because you can’t provide the document they need. 

The French paperwork processes are renowned for being complicated and our objective is to ensure a smooth transition to your new home. So do think and plan ahead, not only about the move, but about the PAPERWORK to bring with you

What are the services we offer and how do we help our customers?  It really is all about increasing the speed at which are clients integrate into the system.  In particular concerning health care, business and benefits.

The French bureaucracy is very process orientated and often they ask for the same paperwork over and over again.  Here are some of the documents you will need when Moving, Living or Working in France.

• Birth Certificates with parental affiliation for all the family
