1. Preparation Is Key

Paris is an expensive city to live in and the culture is different from England. Moving to Paris needs attentive planning. You need to be sure on which areas to move in to, have a basic understanding of the public transport system and research the costs of moving there.

2. Visa Requirements

France is in the EU and if you live outside the EU, chances of needing a visa is high. Usually, you will need a visa if you’re coming to work or study. We recommend you to research the visa requirements so you can get up-to-date information to make the process of moving to Paris as seamless as possible.

3. Housing Hunt

If you are moving to Paris alone, find an accommodation that caters to your needs. In this case, a 1-bedroom apartment would probably the most convenient for you. As always, ensure the accommodation is close to shops and supermarkets to make life easier.

4. Public Transport

If you’re moving to Paris from London, you won’t see much difference. Like London, Paris has a great public transport system that can get you to where you want to be in a matter of minutes. The train system is convenient and reliable. To access it, buy a Navigo Easy for €2 to explore the city.

5. Banking and Finances

It is relatively easy to open a French bank account. Not only will it manage your finances better but it also make paying rent and bills simple. Just keep in mind that France’s currency is Euros.

6. Learn The Language

Moving to a non-English country is not easy, especially when considering the possibility of language barrier. While English is the most popular language in the world, learning French will be highly useless. Try to join language exchange events to improve your French.

7. Book A Laundry Service

Learning the language, sorting out accommodation, settling in the city are all challenges. Each individually take a lot of preparation. The last thing you need is to have laundry chores consume your time and make it harder to adapt to Paris.
