The firm helps companies and employees apply for work permits.

Foreign nationals authorized to reside in France may not engage in paid employment in France without first obtaining a work permit. To work as an employee in France, the following persons must hold a work permit if they are employed in accordance with the provisions of the Labor Code : 

  • Foreign nationals who are not nationals of a member state of the European Union, another member state of the European Economic Area or the Swiss Confederation ;
  • Foreign nationals of a member state of the European Union during the period of application of transitional measures relating to the free movement of workers.

What does the work permit look like?

A work permit can take various forms : a visa, a residence permit, or a document issued by the authorities that is separate from the residence permit. Example: the work permit application approved by the Direccte or the new MOE platforms.

Example 1 : A residence permit marked « vie privée et familiale » (private and family life) includes an unrestricted work permit.

Example 2 : The cerfa n°15186*02 approved by the Direccte constitutes a work authorization, or the work authorization sent by e-mail by foreign labor platforms.

The work authorization takes intoaccount : the department; a specific job; an employer.


The issuance of the following residence permits is subject to prior possession of a work permit:

  • Temporary or multi-annual residence permits bearing the word  » employee », issued to foreign nationals working under open-ended employment contracts,
