1. French Tech Visa
What is the French Tech Visa?
The French government have recently created a series of immigration routes, all designed to attract skilled professionals and entrepreneurs. They are known as the ‘French Tech Visa’ or the ‘Talent Passport’. These changes have resulted in the creation of a new subcategory called ‘Business Investor’.
Here are the following criteria you must meet:
- Invest at least €300,000
- Invest either directly in a start-up or via a company (where they retain at least a 30% shareholding)
- Own at least 10% of the company in which you are investing in
- Create or protect jobs within the four years of investment.
