Hi all

I am a South African looking to move to France. What are my chances of getting a job permit to relocate to France? I have a Honours degree in marketing and in a digital managerial role. What are my chances and where do I start?

You can't get a "job permit" on your own. The way it works in France is that you first must find a job with an employer who is willing and able to get work authorization for you for that position. Basically, it involves the employer having to show that they have tried and failed to find someone already in France (or within the EU) with the proper qualifications and work papers.

There are a couple of categories of visa where you have work privileges - but those are generally limited to close family members of EU nationals already settled in France or the spouses of French nationals.
Cheers,
Bev
