In addition to the reform of the foreigners’ law, announced some months ago, other changes (legislatives and Europeans) are foreseeable for the end of 2014.
1. Bernard Cazeneuve, French Interior Minister, has announced the introduction by end of June, of two bills modifying the right of foreigners.
The draft provides with significant legislative reforms such as:
- Removal of the obligation to apply for a work permit for an assignment of less than 3 months
- Removal of different resident permits that will be combined under a new resident permit with the mention « talents passport »
- Removal of Contract of Reception and Integration (CAI). A new type of contract should be implemented instead.
- Widespread use of the resident permit valid for several years (valid 4 years max) after a first resident permit valid one year
- Widespread use of the long stay visa valid as a resident permit, which avoid foreigners to file their application at the Prefecture during the first year of residence in France.
This bill will be discussed in the Parliament and could be substantially modified before it comes into force.
