Frequently asked questions

  • What is the cost?
    We charge a 160€ fee for the entire process from start to finish.
  • How long does it take to come through?
    The process can easily take between 6 and 12 months from the moment you apply until the moment your Carte Vitale is in your hands.
  • How do I know if I’m eligible for a Carte Vitale?
    If you’ve lived in France for 3 consecutive months or more, you’re eligible to apply. It’s actually a legal obligation to register with French healthcare if you’re a French resident. However, there’s no immediate legal deadline on your application, but if you’d like to get it kickstarted today just give us a call.
