Need Immigration to France, Spain, Germany or New Zealand (help)????
All French work permit applications are dealt with by the local
Direction Departmentale du Travail,
de L'Emploi et de la Formation Professionale (DDTEFP) on a town by
town basis. It is therefore
impossible to give absolute processing times as it varies depending
on the workload of the local office,
The application is lodged with the local DDTEFP and incomplete
applications are returned.
The processing takes generally 4-6 weeks. When a decision is
reached, the approval will be sent by post to the French client.
Spain has announced a general amnesty for illegal immigrants. By
registering with the
relevant authorities, formerly illegal immigrants will beable to
legitimise their presence in Spain.
In consequence, the whole Spanish system is overloaded and
processing times have increased significantly.
