Hello, my husband has been told that to get a carte vitale he must have a copy of his birth certificate in French.
Our local mairie can't help. Does anyone know how we go about getting one. Thanks Glenis
Hi Glenmay we had to do this too, you need a translator to do this, youll find a list on Angloinfo here:
Good luck its a long process
That's interesting and just goes to show that the goal posts can move (or be moved). I got my carte vitale as soon as I got into the French system, i.e. I became employed. I have never had any of my British documents translated.
Thanks Tom, perhaps now we can move forward. I got my carte vitale 6 years ago and didn't have to have any of the documentation they're asking for now. Thanks again Glenis
More hoops to jump through nowadays Tigger!
And France's desire to increase bureaucracy continues ...... Thank Goodness that my paperwork is done and dusted, I'm too old to jump through hoops now, and I certainly don't have the patience.
