MOVING TO FRANCE (UK CITIZENS)
If you want come to France for more that 90 days, you will need to apply for a long-stay visa. There are two types:
- a temporary Long Stay visitor visa (VLS-T Visiteur) if you plan to spend between 3 and 6 months in one block of the year
- for longer stays, a Long Stay visitor visa (visa de long sejour valant tire de sejour VLS-TS visiteur).
Complicated though it may seem, there is a great site with all the details – https://france-visas.gouv.fr/en_US/web/france-visas/ – start with the “Do you need a visa?” box.
