First 90 Days in Paris: FREE Facebook Live Q&A Session

First 90 Days in Paris: FREE Facebook Live Q&A Session

When you arrive in Paris, the party is just getting started. There’s more to the immigration process than just getting your visa in-hand, hopping on a plane, and landing at CDG. There’s a whole other part of it that begins after you arrive here, during your first 90 days.

What’s to start during those crucial first 90 days?

Join the Your Friend in Paris Facebook group to access our free live Q&A session! Our co-founder, Justyna Simmons, will answer your questions about all of the things that might hit you out of nowhere – because the best questions arise after you’ve already landed and hit the ground running. 

Grab your evening glass of wine (or tea, whichever floats your boat!), late night snack, your laptop, and we’ll have a good time learning! Make sure to join the group prior to the live event, so we can answer any & all of your most burning questions. Topics that we’ll discuss include getting all set up with French healthcare, dealing with French immigration after you arrive, receiving CAF benefits, exchanging your drivers license, becoming a tax resident in France, and more!

À bientôt, and we’ll see you there!


  • When: Monday, September 13th at 10:00 PM Paris time
  • Where: Your Friend in Paris Facebook group
  • What: everything you need to know about your first 90 days in Paris
  • Why: because there are still trials & tribulations after happily ever after begins!
What your first day in Paris should look like

What your first day in Paris should look like

It’s the day you and your family have been (im)patiently waiting for (and a little bit anxiously as well, let’s be honest). It’s moving day, and your destination is… Paris!

The Your Friend in Paris team will be hard at work to make this day as relaxing (yes, you read that right) and enjoyable as possible for you and your family. Your only job is to prepare yourself to get pampered!

What your first day in Paris should look like? Picture this:

After you’ve gone through immigration & gotten all of your luggage at Aéroport Charles de Gaulle, you’ll find our driver Fabien waiting to welcome you. He’ll greet you in perfect English and get you to your new home safe & sound (with any car seats that are needed for your little one(s)). Oh, and don’t worry about lugging your bags up the stairs, he’ll bring them up (yes, all of them!).

Your relocation consultant will be the first to welcome you into your new Parisian home with a delicious French breakfast (croissants, fresh fruit, hot chocolate, you name it!). They’ll hand over the keys, show you around the house, and give you your privacy shortly thereafter.

Food prepared for your first day in Paris

Ready for that post-flight shower and nap? No need to run to your local store before or set anything up: your furniture (and any other items) has been assembled, all of the beds are made, and fresh towels & toiletries are in the shower.

What about the kids?

They’ve slept the entire flight & are ready to explore their new home! No worries, our trusted nanny will take care of them while you sleep off the jet lag.

Your relocation consultant will meet with you again the following day to go through the laundry list of things we took care of for you prior to your arrival in Paris.

Here’s what we did: 

  • Organized a rental car
  • Found the perfect school for your little expat(s)
  • Set up all contracts
  • Set up your internet and mobile phone
  • Hired your new housekeeper and nanny
  • Purchased public transit passes
  • Everything else you needed us to handle.

And this is not the last time you’ll see us! We offer all of our clients unlimited assistance throughout the first 30 days. We know that questions often arise after the first few days, which is why we’re here to answer them during your first month (or even after that).

Because Your Friend in Paris was created by expats for expats, we know what a perfect relocation should look like. Let us show you!
