Six months in France -- how to do it?

Jump to last reply

Hi there,

I am an American, and able to do my work on the road.

I would love-love-love to spend six continuous months in France, most likely Paris, alternately working and making short trips around the country exploring.

Are there any visa options that would allow me to do that?

Like, if I enrolled in a language school part time, could I get an educational visa?

Yes, I can do my own visa research. But I've read so much about French bureaucracy, that I thought it would be smarter to ask here first what visas others have *actually obtained* or what their luck has been attempting the same.

If you're a US citizen and have successfully found a way to do a six-month stint in France...please let me know how you did it!

Thanks!
