Alumni

First unveiled in Paris by the French Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Development in November 2014, France Alumni is an efficient multilingual digital platform to connect, inform and guide foreign students who have studied in French higher education institutes.

France Alumni – India, launched in September 2016, helps former students acquire key industry knowledge, discover exciting career opportunities, and gain valuable insights on the economic and professional world. Through this platform, the over 400 French companies operating in India, which employ 300,000 skilled Indian workers, can also share information on job offers and internships, develop their brand and recruit Indian talents.

The www.francealumni.fr/en portal enables former foreign students to keep abreast of upcoming events and opportunities. The 2016-2017 schedule includes, among others, job fairs, French Masterclasses, recognition of alumnae, webinars and seminars on topical issues, mentorship programmes, and participation in philanthropic activities.

Visa for France Alumni +

2-Year Extension Visa
An agreement has been signed between the two nations during the visit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2015. This allows Indian students in France to stay for a period of 24 months: a 12-month visa renewable once for a period of 12 months. Indian students in France can extend their stay in the country beyond completion of their studies (as can French students in India).

5-Year visa
In July 2013, the Ambassador of France to India decided to facilitate travel to France for all Indian citizens residing in India that have previously studied in France.

The 5-year visa allows applicants to stay in the Schengen area for up to 90 days, with a 90-day gap between stays. Indian alumni of Indo-French dual degree programs (PG) are eligible to apply as well. Alumni from all generations are eligible. Spouse and children accompanying are also eligible.

Talent Passport
Since Feb 2016, France has established the "Talent Passport," a new type of multi-year residence permit (4-Year) for the most skilled foreigners who wish to live in France.

It is designed in particular for researchers, artists, employees on assignments abroad, and scientists, as well as internationally-renowned figures. Foreign students who obtain it can more easily work in France after finishing their studies, thus adding to France's international appeal with their energy and talent. Spouses can also benefit from the Talent Passport as they too are allowed to work in France.
