“France is making Colombia’s bet.” It is with these words that Prime Minister Manuel Valls and Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos have formalized the signing of a Labour Holiday Programme (PVT) agreement between France and Colombia.
The implementation of this PVT will therefore allow young French people to travel to Colombia to travel and work for a year. Colombia is therefore the 11th country to benefit from PVT agreements with France. However, many points are still unclear: no effective date or details on the conditions of participation (age, participation fees, etc.).
As a reminder, other PVT agreements are still awaiting their entry into force, such as PVT Brazil or PVT Chile.
For those who want to go and live this unique experience in South America, think of PVT Argentina! But most of all, don’t forget your PVT insurance!
