Hi there,

I am a chef from Canada, although I have been living in London, UK for the last 3 years. I have found a job in Honfleur in Normandy at a Michelin restaurant as a chef, and I now have an apartment as well.

I have been living in France for about 3 months now, and had some questions. I have heard that when moving to a new town in France, you need to check in with city hall, or hotel de ville. Some of my non french friends and colleagues here say they have never heard of this requirement. Anyone familiar with this...?

I am also a little confused about the healthcare system here. I should mention that I have an EU passport, and pay taxes through my employment. For instance, if I were to visit a doctor or dentist, would I be expect to pay? Do I need to register for a social security number beforehand?

Any help with this or advice would be much appreciated, thanks!
