Welcome to the French national EURAXESS portal!



  • On March 16, 2020, the French President has decided to take measures to minimize contact and travel. A quarantine is in place throughout the territory since Tuesday, March 17, for a minimum of fifteen days. Travel is prohibited except in some specific cases and only if you have a certificate. Please consult the French Government website for more information and to download the certificate (English version available).
  • The validity of the following documents is extended by three months: long-stay visas; residence permits, whatever their nature, with the exception of special residence permits issued to foreign diplomatic and consular staff; receipts for residence permit applications. It is not recommended for foreign nationals with an expired title benefiting from this extension to leave French territory.
