  • If you want a life change and an exciting daily life...
  • If you want to restart your life in France but aren't sure how to make it happen...
  • If you want a new purpose and run your (future) business...
  • If you want to do it the right way to give you the best chances to set up your life (and maybe in the long-term)...

…then this is the solution that will give you the autonomy, the confidence and the strategy to make your move to France happen and as stressless as possible.


There’s nothing more frustrating than feeling lost about what you need to do when you know deep down that you need a change. It is like losing control when you know you are a doer.


You have big plans, and you know how to make them happen in your comfort zone, your home country. But when it comes to moving overseas, it is like playing a new game without understanding the rules and being unable to read the manual.


You are not used to feeling overwhelmed and it makes you frustrated (or let’s say the word no one wants to admit but that everyone feels… scared). Scared you will make the wrong visa choice, you are feeling that the French bureaucracy is too overwhelming to complete successfully…


…and you won’t experience the fresh start you have been daydreaming about for too long now.

And then what?


Then what happens when you arrive in France?


There are too many pending questions, and doubts that you are starting to question your life project.


And you don’t want to be asking yourself in a few years… how your life would have been if you’d managed to overcome all these fears and doubts.

Let me tell you something…

This is totally normal!

I’ve tried for many years to move to Brazil, my dream country and I failed the first time. So I know how you are feeling!

  • FRENCH BUREAUCRACY FOR EVERYTHING

The French bureaucracy is unavoidable when it comes to settling in France.

  • LACK OF INFORMATION IN ENGLISH

The French administration doesn’t provide customer service. It is not even about getting good service...and even less in English!

  • FRENCH ADMINISTRATION STRUGGLE

There are specific ways to address the French administration to have successful outcomes that no one explains.

  • AVOID THE MOST COMMON MISTAKES

There are frequent mistakes to avoid that will get your visa refused that are even more mysterious.

  • BEWARE OF THE MISINFORMATION

Of course, you will find information on forums, social media often given by other expats that have been through the “same” process.


But this is a false solution for three reasons:

  • Their personal experience often doesn’t match your situation.
  • There is a lot of misinformation and outdated information not based on the French up-to-date laws in force.
  • You will get contradictory information and will be even more lost than before.

The French administration can be fearful!

There has been a total of 500,433 visa refusals in 2022 you don’t want to be a part of.


And if your visa is rejected, your visa fee (including the booking fees and mail fees) of about €150 per person will be lost if your visa is rejected!


And this is without counting the certified translations you may have undertaken and the healthcare insurance cost you bought!


A visa refusal can cost you a lot of money (and sanity)!

Source: French Ministry of Foreign Affairs – DGEF – Sous-direction des Visas

To avoid being part of these 500,433 visas rejected,

you need to have a plan

and it doesn’t have to be overwhelmingly complicated!

Get trusted & sourced legal information!

Having access to up-to-date legal information is key for a successful visa request application.


For this reason, I have worked with an immigration lawyer, Mr Yannis Lantheaume, registered at the French Bar of Lyon.


He reviewed the full visa section (Module 2) as of the latest 2022 legal updates.


Also, if you need to refer to the law, I also include in the course the legal French sources.

I’ve been there too!

Back in 2013, I had the project to move to Brazil. I had my mind and my heart set on Brazil!

It was my dream and I had a plan!


At the time I was living in the UK and working as a Global Mobility expert working for a large American company. I was moving people overseas for a living so I know the challenges!


I even had job interviews in Brazil with my intermediate Portuguese language level!


A challenge! But… it didn’t happen… I was crushed…


And the main reason why is that the employers couldn’t (or didn’t want to) go through the heavy Brazilian red tape! Sounds familiar?


So I gave up on my dream! Silly mistake


(and it took me years to decide to find another way to move to Brazil and this time successfully!)

But YOU don’t have to give up on your dream!

Here is what you need to make your dream come true:


Enough of endless internet research bringing more confusion than reliable solutions!


There is not just one way to come and run a business in France and choosing the wrong one may have unforeseen consequences.


So I’ve created something new that will bring you much more than all your research.


(It is what I wish I’d found to move to Brazil the first time!)


I will share with you a Formula, a real method for you to organise your entire international move sponsor-free.


This Formula is my recipe for you to gain confidence to manage your international move.


It is the result of my own experience as a serial expatriate in six different countries and also my 12 years of professional experience assisting expats from all over the world.


(PLUS my insider knowledge of the French administration and how they think.)


“A dream without a plan is just a wish”

Now, here is how you can stop losing time & make your dream of a fresh start come true.

Introducing:

Get the entire move to France strategy to turn your international relocation into a stressless and life-changing experience.

Gain Control & Confidence

walk away with your visa application file ready to be submitted & your entire move planned out.

🇫🇷 Bureaucracy Made Easy

get your French bureaucracy template pack for an easy move (French letter, business plan framework, visa request cover letter, and much more)

Clarity & Peace of Mind

have a clear process of all the essential French bureaucracy steps to undertake for a successful move.

Welcome to a step-by-step online course for sponsor-free adventurers who want to relocate to France (and nail the French bureaucracy) without the overwhelm.

It’s The Difference Between Struggling To Organise Your International Relocation Or Easily Making Your Big Move Happen.

When you master your move to France, here’s what happens…

  • Hours saved of useless and frustrating Google searches.
  • Hundred of € saved in wrong administrative processes initiated and avoid missed opportunities.
  • You don't miss out on opportunities to have an easier, cheaper and faster process (you get insider tips that even French people don't know).

The result?

Anticipation + The Right Organisation = Successful Expatriation

Newsflash: Getting tips here and there from other expats does not make for a successful expatriation.

That’s why there are 40% of expatriations end prematurely. Poor and inadequate preparation often has a high cost both in terms of time, and money but also emotional impact.


There is a big chance your fellow expats situation is different from yours. Therefore, their tips may not help you, or worse, they could really get you stuck in a French bureaucracy nightmare! And that’s why this course is so focused on up-to-date sourced information for every sponsor-free visa type.


Yes, I give you the customized cost estimate calculator so you know exactly how much to save for your move to France. Yes, you’ll get monthly Q&A so we can tailor the training to your unique situation.


Yes, you’ll get your business plan template framework to prepare your best visa request possible.

Yes, you’ll get visa request information validated by an immigration lawyer as of the latest 2022 legal updates. Mr Yannis Lantheaume is registered at the French Bar of Lyon.

I’m trying to enrol you in a vision of a bigger future for yourself… a future with more freedom and discovery. A future where you can live an international life and also grow your potential.


Well, the reality is that France Formula is an investment… an investment in yourself and your future.

It’s about giving you the freedom, security, and lifestyle that you want.


Of course… ALL investments have risks. EXCEPT FOR THIS ONE. There are two ways this investment can go for you.


Here’s the first scenario: you put France Formula to work and crush it with your big move… and in that case, you’re probably going to need a calculator to figure out how much a new life is worth.


The second scenario goes like this… you just don’t do anything with the material, or you get distracted, or it’s just not your thing. That’s OK… I get it.


In this case, just take advantage of my 30-day guarantee… and just send me an email and we’ll get you a refund right away. No hard feelings.


Remember, your investment is covered by my 30-day guarantee – you have a full 30 days… from the start of the programme… to see if the programme is right for you. If you decide that it isn’t by the end of the 30 days, just let us know and we’ll gladly refund your money. No issues.


So go ahead and click the pink button below and join me in the France Formula programme.

Meet Guiga, your Move to France coach

I’m Guiga (my name is actually Guillemette, but very complicated for most people – even the French!).


I’m a French serial expat from Lyon. I have lived in 6 different countries so far: Ireland, Argentina, Luxembourg, the UK, Spain and Brazil. I have also helped 4,003 expats (still counting) from all over the world to move abroad during my 12 years as a Global Mobility professional.


Now, I want to share my experience, my personal and professional experience, with adventurers like YOU who don’t get the golden expat package from large corporations!


I will share with you all my knowledge about moving abroad and I’ll give you the real France, from a French women’s perspective who lived the expat ups and downs.

FAQ

What nationality is the course for?

This course is for all nationalities and was more specifically prepared for non-EU nationals (including British citizens).


However, it is important to take into account that a few countries have bilateral agreements with France that will have specific visa requirements and/or quotas. Before purchasing this course, be aware that the specificities of the bilateral agreement ARE NOT detailed in the course.


Bilateral agreements apply to nationals of the Maghreb states and some sub-Saharan African states.

I’m a non-EU national in a Civil union with my French partner, can I request a French spouse visa?

The French spouse visa (Visa Vie Privée et Familiale - conjoint de français) only applies to married spouses of a French national or PACSed (French civil union).


A non-French civil union or long-term de-facto relationship are not sufficient grounds to request a French spouse visa under French law.


It is recommended to get married or request another visa depending on the other reason you are moving to France.

What if I plan to move next year?

No problem.


Anticipation is actually recommended when it comes to planning an international move.


Depending on the visa type, six months before is a good target, but it can be sooner. Four or five months before could do too but with the extra stress involved.


The Visitor visa and the French spouse visa request could be submitted 6 weeks before, but I always prefer to anticipate to avoid bad surprises with the French bureaucracy.


You will have plenty of time to plan your move as you have lifetime access to the course.

I’m a non-EU retiree, does the course apply to me?

YES! If you are receiving a pension from another country than France and you are relocating to France for more than 3 months, then yes, this course applies to you.


People that have worked in France in the past under a French work contract and therefore have contributed to the French system will need to request another visa that is not part of this course yet.

What is the difference between the France Formula course & this course: Dream to Reality?

France Formula online course is a much more complete course on the full international relocation process to France:

  • pre-departure including the visa request
  • the process on arrival (immigration, housing, school, healthcare, banking...) and your French integration tool kit
  • and of course your visa renewal & long-term plans in France).

Dream to Reality focuses on the visa request only and it includes the five sponsor-free visas detailed above.

I will be working for a company in France, does the programme apply to my situation?

NO. The Dream to Reality programme only applies to sponsor-free visas:

1 - The Profession Libérale / Entrepreneur visa​,

2 - The Talent-Passport Entrepreneur visa,

3 - The Talent-Passport Artistic Profession visa,

4 - The Visitor visa,

5 - The French spouse visa.


Therefore, if you are a salaried employee of a French-based company, your employer will sponsor your visa and you will need to request the applicable sponsored work visa which is not included in this course.

I want to run my current business in France, does this course apply to me?

YES. All the entrepreneur visa allows one to run a non-French business in/from France.


This course will give you the relevant visa request process.


However, it will not replace the need for the services of a chartered accountant to set up your business in a way to be compliant in France.

Is there a guarantee my visa will be approved with this course?

No one can give this guarantee, and I wouldn’t trust any professional that certifies a visa will be granted after a course or a lawyer consultation.


Only the consulate has the power to approve or reject a request file and the reason is sometimes out of our control.


However, the visa request section has been fully reviewed by Mr Lantheaume and Ms Pochard, immigration lawyers at Lyon's Bar and includes the latest immigration updates as of January 2023.


This course is for educational purposes and will give you the tools and reassurance for you to prepare the best visa application file according to your situation.
