Passeport Talent offers a unique opportunity for foreign nationals
to obtain French residency for four years.

This residence permit can be obtained through the French Tech Visa program, specifically designed for startup employees, economic investors, and founders of technology companies from non-European Union countries. Implemented by the government at the legislative level, this program aims to support and develop the French startup ecosystem both nationally and internationally.

The benefits of Passeport Talent also extend to the family of the main applicant, including the spouse and minor children, making this program especially attractive for those looking to start a new life in a European country.

Upon meeting the necessary conditions, a foreign national can obtain the Passeport Talent card – a special type of residency permit that allows working, doing business, and studying in France.

The only immigration program in France that grants residency immediately for four years without the need for annual renewal.
