Since France adopting the EU Blue Card is fairly new, I wanted to share the process I was advised of for those of you lucky enough to find work in France:

1 – Collection of all the documents from you and from company
2 – your application file will be sent to the Labor Department in Paris for approval
3 – your application file will be transferred to the Office of Immigration for registration
4- your application file will be transferred to the Consulate of France or wherever you live
5 – Booking an appointment to hand-in your visa application file
6- Long-stay visa collection at the Consulate of France
7 – Arrival in France: work can commence immediately
8- Carte Sejour requires a separate application {French residence card}

To recap, Blue Cards are for "highly skilled" workers who meet minimum salary and work qualifications.

Documents I have had to prepare include:
- your passport
- diploma
- copy of CV
- copy of your birth certificate with full parents' names
- photo

Hope this helps!

Thanks for that information. The process sounds pretty much like the same as that for getting a work visa - though being a "highly skilled" worker definitely gives you an edge, I'm sure.
Cheers,
Bev
