How long does it take to move to France?

France includes some overseas territories (La France d'Outre-Mer), which are parts of the French territory outside Europe. They are divided into DOM-ROM, COM, CSG and TAAF. The Départements et régions d'outre-mer (DOM-ROM) belong to the territory of the European Union, but are not a Schengen area and are not part of the EU excise territory, but have the euro as their currency. The DOM-ROM regions include French Guiana, Guadeloupe, Martinique, Mayotte and Réunion. Tourists experience many sunny sides here, but immigrants also experience some dark sides.
There is still a lot of catching up to do in the health system and health insurance. People tend to be problem-oriented rather than solution-oriented, which leads to some problems in society.

Moving to France - Costs
As there are so many variables, it is often difficult to estimate the cost of international removals as they can vary considerably. In any case, for your move to France, you should include the following factors in your planning:
 
Mode of transport:
Moving by air is generally the fastest, but also more expensive. Alternatively, there are many routes for land freight, which is usually cheaper.
 
Size of the move:
The size and weight of the possessions, will affect the cost as the calculation of the price is based on the weight and space requirements of the goods being moved.
 
IMPORTANT NOTICE:
Please fill out our form accurately and completely so that we can provide you with a binding quote.
 
Packing:
Special moving boxes and packaging are the best solution to ensure fragile items are transported safely.
 
Like any move abroad, moving to France is a challenge. Then there is the language.
 
Most of the jobs and opportunities in France are in the metropolis of Paris with over 11 million inhabitants. About a quarter of the country's production facilities are located there. If you are not dependent on many job offers, there are many unique regions where you can spend your retirement years in comfort. In Alsace, older people in particular still speak German. But the south of France is also very popular.
 
Language: 
The French language developed from francien, which was spoken in the Middle Ages in what is now the Île-de-France region. It spread roughly as the French kings expanded their dominions. Most people who move to France from Germany usually bring a large part of their possessions with them. However, to ensure that not only the transport, but the entire move goes off without complications, you should take care of the formalities as best you can beforehand.

France, officially République française, is a democratic, intercontinental unitary state in Western Europe with overseas islands and territories on several continents. the European part of the national territory, extends from the Mediterranean to the English Channel and the North Sea, and from the Rhine to the Atlantic Ocean. Its mainland is called a hexagon because of the shape of the country. France is the largest country in the European Union by area and the second largest by population (behind Germany). It comprises the third largest national territory in Europe (after Russia and Ukraine)In the 17th and 18th centuries, France held a European leadership role and supremacy. France is divided into 18 regions, 13 of which are in Europe and five of which are French overseas territories.The metropolitan region around Paris (French région parisienne) is located in the Île-de-France region and has more than twelve million inhabitants. The metropolitan areas around Lyon (Métropole de Lyon), Marseille, Bordeaux, Toulouse and Lille have well over one million inhabitants. It is estimated that today's France was settled about 48,000 years ago. From 600 BC, Phoenician and Greek traders established bases on the Mediterranean coast, while Celts from the northwest settled the land, which was later called Gaul by the Romans.
Form of government: France is a republicGrande Nation is used as a synonym for France or the French nation, especially in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The "French motherland" in Europe (also called Metropolitan France) has an area of 543,965 square kilometres. As one of the largest countries in Europe, France has numerous landscapes, some of which are very different. The landscape is predominantly characterised by plains or hills France has sea coasts to the south facing the Mediterranean Sea, to the west and to the north facing the Atlantic Ocean, the English Channel and the North Sea. It borders Spain and Andorra to the southwest, Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, Switzerland and Italy to the north and east, and Monaco to the southeast.  As an EU citizen, you can enter France with your passport or identity card. This allows you to stay in France indefinitely as long as you have a regular income. If you want to live and work in France for a longer period of time, it is advisable to apply for a residence permit (Carte de Séjour). This can be done at the police station or at the town hall of the city where you want to live. The residence permit is no longer compulsory, but it can make some procedures much easier when taking up employment. Once you have resided legally and continuously in the country for 5 years, you have the right of permanent residence. After that, no further conditions are attached to the residence, such as proof of income.
