France opens its doors to talents from all over the world with the "Talent Passport" – a unique program that started in 2017 aimed at attracting foreign specialists, investors, and creative individuals.

This visa program offers them the opportunity to carry out professional activities on French territory, live and work in the country for the first four years with the possibility of subsequent extension.

A distinctive feature of the program is its availability not only to highly qualified professionals but also to entrepreneurs ready to invest at least 30,000 euros in the country's economy, as well as to founders and employees of innovative companies.

An additional bonus is that the new requirements for knowledge of the French language, introduced for other types of visas, do not apply to the "Talent Passport," and the visa holders' families are given the opportunity to join them with the right to employment.

The program sets certain requirements for the level of salary, varying depending on the applicant's field of activity, and requires confirmation of financial solvency for the entire period of stay.

It was previously reported that in response to requests from the regional government and efforts to integrate migrants, Canada will allocate over 362 million dollars for providing housing for refugees.
