More and more French expatriates

The latest statistics confirm the trend observed in recent years. For a long time, the French were more domesticated than their neighbors, but now they’ve really developed a taste for expatriation. The number of expatriates has risen by over 50% in ten years.


Heading for Asia/Oceania and North America

Overall, the major trends remain the same. Of course, it’s those closest to us who benefit most from this migration. This is particularly true of Great Britain, which remains a favorite destination for the French.

Canada and North America are growing faster than the global average, and the United States is the third most popular destination for French visitors. In fact, nearly one in two French expatriates in the USA holds dual French-American nationality.

Of course, Asia and Oceania remain very popular destinations, especially China and Australia, given their economic growth.

South America and North Africa should soon be crossing the 100,000 French resident threshold.
