In the process of filling in the paperwork to apply for French nationality I paused to admire the sheer number of forms and bits of paper needed……….well in excess of thirty, all copied twice and attached to the original…..

From needing a police report from the UK to prove there’s no murky past, to three years business accounts justifying that our family won’t be a burden on the state. Collate the whole lot then go and be interviewed in Vannes to prove your comprehension of the language !!! After that a two to three year wait whilst necessary checks are completed.

Sound like the French have it about right……………………………………….

Editor’s Note : It sounds like Nicola is at an early stage of her French Nationality application. Do we have other readers who have already been through this process and who can perhaps offer some advice here? Please add your comments below…
