EU Blue Card - France

About visa :

EU Blue Card is a work permit issued by 25 out of 28 EU Member States to highly-qualified non-EU citizens. Introduced in 2007 by the European Commission, the Proposal became officially known and implemented in 2009 as the EU Blue Card Directive with intentions to stimulate economic development by making Europe a desirable destination for qualified workers to practice professional knowledge and skills as well as allowing free movement within the European Union for non-EU citizens.

The name [EU Blue Card] came as a combination between the USA's Green Card and the color of the European Union flag. Renowned companies operate throughout EU member states, offering professional and personal growth through good work opportunities as well as research and study.


  • In France, the EU Blue Card is issued for a maximum period of three years and is renewable.
  • If the employment contract is longer than one year but shorter than three years, the EU Blue Card shall be issued for the duration of the contract.
