How Do I Get A Working Holiday Visa For France? 

You can obtain a working holiday visa if you are between 18 and 30 years old (35 if you are Canadian).
The visa allows you to work and stay in France for up to a year. The idea behind the visa is that it gives young people the chance to visit France, explore the culture and travel whilst making some
money through working in France.
The visa basically authorises you to work whilst being a tourist for up to 12 month. The visa cannot be renewed (there is an exception if you are Canadian – apparently Canada makes its own rules).
If you are a holder of a working holiday visa, you don’t have to face the bureaucratic hassle that many are hit with upon their arrival in France. You can, for example, spend the entire year in France
without having to request a residency permit (you might want to request if for other reasons, such as
the CAF).
You also don’t need to obtain a permit to work. Exceptions for this rule apply if you’re from Russia or New Zealand – if this is the case, consult the website we have linked below.

There is an official website for visas in France where you can apply for your visa and find out exactly what you need. You will also find information on how to prepare your stay in France.
