What is the PVT?

Are you between 18 and 30 years old and looking for an experience abroad? The Working Holiday Visa (WHV) is for you!
The PVT is an exchange program that enables young French people to live and work in one of the member countries, thanks to a temporary work visa.

This unforgettable experience, lasting up to a year, lets you discover a new culture, learn or perfect a foreign language and visit one of the ten countries on the program, while working to support yourself locally.
