Attention - Online scams
This embassy draws the attention of visa applicants who seek to work in France on the recrudescence of online scams: fake job offers circulate via certain websites in order to extort money from the applicants by pretending to be French Embassy. Any foreigner wishing to enter France in order to take up an job must first obtain a work permit (also known as a work permit). It is to the future employer, established in France and who wishes to recruit, to make the first necessary steps with the French administration. This Embassy wishes also to stress that it never asks for any online payment and that its only visa subcontractor is VFS (https://visa.vfsglobal.com/lka/en/fra).
