ANNOUNCED AS TEMPORARYNo
Labour market access
On 11 August 2011, the government of France shortened the list of shortage occupations for non-EU/EFTA citizens. The list now contains 14 occupations, down from 30 prior to the change in regulation.
Jobs offered in the listed occupations are not subject to a labour market test required by French authorities for the employment of citizens from non-EU/EFTA countries, in which the employer needs to demonstrate that no suitable French or EU candidate can be found to fill up the vacancy.
Update February 15, 2013:
On December 26, 2012, the Conseil d'Etat - the supreme judicial body in matters of administrative law - has overruled this decision following a legal challenge. As a result, the previous list of about 30 shortage occupations, varying by region, is now back in effect.
