France Extends Post Study Work Visa From 2 Years to 5 Years for Masters Students
On 13th July 2023, India’s Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, released an important announcement while addressing the Indian community at LA Seine Musicale in Paris. The PM disclosed that all Indian students who are pursuing their Masters in France will now enjoy a post-study work visa extension of 5 years from the previous 2 years duration.
France has always been a preferred study destination, especially for Indian students. The French government and Indian governments have consistently worked in harmony to assist the academic needs of Indian communities residing in France. From providing the required assistance to Indian students during the pandemic to now signing an MoU (Memorandum of Understanding) with NPCI (National Payments Corporation of India) to conduct seamless payments in the country, France continues to make the lives easier for Indian students within the country.
With the five-year post-study work visa extension, an Indian student with a Master’s graduate degree can reap several benefits such as:
- Ability to apply for a PR immediately after a five-year-long stay in France
- Opportunity to enhance your professional experience with the best brand names in the country
- Create new career avenues by applying to the best corporate firms in France
The leap from a 2-year to a 5-year post-study work visa has unlocked doors to a plethora of work opportunities for Indian students to grasp in order to equip themselves with the skills and knowledge needed to ace their career goals. If you’re still contemplating where to pursue your Masters from, France proves to be a preferred destination.
