The Working Holiday Permit allows young people aged 17 to 35 to go abroad for a maximum period of one year in one of the seventeen countries that have signed agreements with France (Canada, Australia, Singapore, New Zealand, Japan and South Korea, for example).


With over 9,000 Working Holiday Visas issued, France ranks sixth.

It’s a great time to visit, meet new people and broaden your professional experience.

The website presents this program in detail, with the PVT conditions for taking part and the PVT formalities for completing the Working Holiday Visa application. You’ll also find a host of useful tips for finding accommodation, working in PVT, booking a hotel or a car, making cheaper phone calls or forwarding your mail. We also offer a presentation of each PVT country.

We also offer Working Holiday insurance. In fact, it is compulsory to take out travel insurance, whatever your country of destination. Upon arrival, you may be required to provide proof of travel insurance covering your entire stay. You’ll need to take along the insurance contract justifying your subscription.

While travel insurance is an obligation, it’s also a precaution. If you have the slightest health problem, or a problem with your luggage or flight, for example, Working Holiday travel insurance will protect you from these unforeseen events.

Medical expenses (with or without hospitalization), repatriation assistance, civil liability coverage (often required), legal protection in the event of litigation and accident coverage in the event of death are just some of the PVT insurance coverages you should consult.

Of course, the more comprehensive your coverage (high ceiling, low deductible), the better insured you’ll be, and the higher the insurance price. However, in certain countries with high medical costs (Canada, Australia, New Zealand, etc.), it’s important to have a policy that covers these costs locally, otherwise you’ll have to pay them yourself. Conclusion: don’t just focus on the price of insurance!
