My husbabroad and & I are wanting to live abroad next year. 8 months in France & maybe 4 months in the Netherlands. Do we need to apply for seperate visas for each country? & if yes, can we apply for the Dutch visa in France as France will be our first destination?

thanks

You probably should check the websites of the consulates for both countries.

France is a real stickler for having you apply at the consulate where you are considered resident. I'm not as sure about the Netherlands, but considering that you are technically "resident" in France while on a long-stay visa, there's a good chance you can apply in France for the Dutch visa. Just be sure to bring your passports with the validated French visa.
Cheers,
Bev

If you are resident in france u can live in netherlands without a seperate visa...as long as u are spending 3 months in each six month period in the netherlands....even if u spend 4 months the hardly ever check this.
