Expatriates: a network at your service
Whether you want to move abroad or you are already an expatriate, the Maisons des français de l'étranger, which are part of the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs (MAEE), are a vital part of your journey. There you will find documentation with plenty of information about countries, directories and sites dedicated to "expats". The directorate of French people abroad of the MAEE has over 2 000 agents spread throughout the French embassies and consulates abroad. On site, abroad, an electronic administration office specially dedicated to French people outside of France will give you access to many formalities online.
