Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Who is aiming to stay longer than 90 days in France this season and what are your plans to do it?

I'm not telling you off. It is none of my business.

I'm just saying that establishing residence in France is going to bring you onto the radar.

I have some ideas about how to avoid French tax though based on how things work currently if anyone wants to go down that route.

I've effectively been here 5 years but for 3 I still had my place in UK but spent less and less time there. I've paid french tax back to the start of last year. Still waiting for carte vitale though, nearly 8 months Crying or Very sad

Well it is a big step to move tax regime. Once you Brits are at retirement age you should qualify for free healthcare though and be able to drop the expensive private health cover (although even the mutuels are quite expensive)

LynnX's Carte Vitale took almost 2 years and the RSI lost both of our original birth certificates in the process Shocked

@davidof, I don't think the mutuelles are too bad, ~€50/month

@KenX, Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad I'm going to pop down to CPAM next week to find out. She originally said 4 months or so, "vous êtes inactif le plus difficile" Laughing but that was pre lockdown. I did receive one letter asking something I'd already answered at rdv but nothing since.

Depends on the cover I suppose. €50/month is very cheap for an oap in the Hautes-Alpes, a bargain.

Hello! I am in the same position as you! I'm trying to figure out how I can obtain the following: A support certificate by an insurance offering the services mentioned in Articles L. 160-8 and L. 160-9 of the Social Security Code. I think this is some kind of health insurance, right? I'm in France but I don't have health insurance, so I will need to buy it to get the certificate. Is that correct? How will you be obtaining this insurance certificate? I would REALLY appreciate any help or advice!! Smile

@Balthazar Margoose, the certificate is your policy document. You need to take out private health insurance and provide a copy of your policy document as proof of cover.
