The official language of France is French, and for Irish people moving to France is recommended that you learn the local language. Whilst English is widely understood in the major cities, as with any country that you visit, the locals always appreciate your efforts at speaking their language.

The standard of health care in France is very good. Carrying a valid EHIC (European Health Insurance Card) will allow you access to the French health care system and you will be treated as in the same way as a French resident. Note that there is a difference between state and private healthcare so ensure that you check exactly what you are covered for, should the need arise for health care in France.

French visa issues for Irish people
Irish passport holders do not require a visa for France. France and Ireland are both members of the European Union (EU), which allows valid passport holders entry in to each country without the need of a French visa.

Further, all EU and EEA (European Economic Area) citizens have the right to live and work in France without the need of a residence or work permit. This right is extended to family members, which include your partner/spouse and children under the age of 21. You are legally obligated to carry photo ID with you at all times in France. For permanent relocation to France, you should register with your local town hall within three months of arrival (enregistrement des citoyens européens).

As with any international relocation, you should always check with the appropriate authorities to confirm the exact legal requirements for your visa arrangements.
