Are you applying for the long term visitor visa?Glowurmgirl wrote: ↑Sat Jan 22, 2022 6:12 amHi everyone, I am a South African passport holder looking to live and work remotely in France, I know that I need to apply for a French long term (D) visa, a Carte de Sejour and to do so I need to show earnings and a French address.
