Information guide for persons being resettled to France

You will soon enter the French territory either because you were issued a visa in order to claim asylum in France (« protected entry ») or as a resettled refugee, or in the framework of a transfer from another European Union (EU) Member-State.

The French authorities have taken the decision to welcome you in France. However, this implies that you and the members of your family must be willing to come to France. No-one can ask you for any kind of payment or reward in return for your entry and stay in France, be it before your departure, or once you are on the French territory.

This document is designed to give you useful information about administrative procedures, reception conditions and life in France.
