Citizens of EU countries, Liechtenstein, Iceland and Norway do not require work permits in order to contract in France. All other nationalities must obtain French Work Permits. Organising Work Permits for contractors in France can be a difficult and painstaking process.
The rules are regularly updated to reflect market conditions and government policy. The French are particularly protective of their domestic workforce although this is changing slightly due to the chronic shortages of skilled workers - especially in IT. We try to keep our information up to date as much as possible but we rely heavily on our local partners who are the specialists.
