Hello,

I am an Egyptian Engineer working in Dubai and I would like to move to France to live there.

My friends told me that if I invest a 250 thousand dollars in a property I can get the French citizenship.

Is this information is right or not and if I got the citizenship in this way, would I have the same rights as a native citizen?

Thanks

We are retired and have just moved to France to live and we have been advised to take out a life insurance (assurance vie) as means of savings. I have had one quote so far and the rate of interest is approx. 2 1/2 % which seems to be the norm. But I am concerned about the charges/fees. Could you advise me. Also can you advise if me and my wife can have more than one life insurance each?
Thanking you.
Best regards
John Forkin

Hi. In order to receive payment from a French Life insurance company, I need to open an account in France but I don't live there. How can I open an account in France (optimally using an American Company) without having any evidence that I live in France. Is that possible?
