Help Settling in
Babylangues will bring you a great help settling in. Getting started in a new country is undoubtedly an exciting yet daunting experience. Because some aspects of your future life have to be sorted out when you arrive in France, here are a few tips on bank accounts, and social security.
If you are interested in setting up a French bank account during your stay, Babylangues will guide you through the process with a local BNP branch within walking distance of the office. Even if you do not have a definitive address yet, Babylangues will provide you with the necessary documentation allowing you to have your post sent to the office in the meantime.
Being employed by a French company gives you the right to French Social Security and health insurance. You may want to obtain a social security number in order to have access to health care services. If you are studying in France, the university you are affiliated to will assist you in completing the required documentation for obtaining this information. If this is not the case, our team can provide you with helpful information regarding all administrative aspects of your stay.
