Croatia and France: a transitional period
France has introduced a two-year transitional period
During that period, Croatian nationals wishing to take up
employment in France as an employee will have to obtain a
work permit. The employment situation may be raised as an
objection against their employment, save in the case of a list of
291 occupations.
(Agriculture and Hospitality/Tourism are among these so-called
shortage occupations).

The peak is in February-March and the French mountainous
departments that offer the most seasonal work are
Savoie, Haute-Savoie and Isère.
The Maison des saisonniers offers help and advice to seasonal
workers concerning accommodation and social rights.
The mountains in the summer
 As well as the peak of activity in winter, there is the influx of
tourists in summer which again creates a great demand for
workers in the shops, hotels and restaurants.
The many summer sporting activities on offer (hiking, rafting,
kayaking, bungee jumping, horse riding) create a demand for
qualified instructors and guides.
