PART FOUR: How to Build a 🇫🇷French🇫🇷 Visa Dossier: FORMATTING TIPS
Yesterday, I touched on how important it is to have a cover letter for every section of your dossier. But it is equally important that you highlight, call-out, circle, and flag all the crucial aspects of the documents you are submitting.
Use Deepl, folks, to translate your cover letters and any of your notes. DO NOT use Google Translate. EVERYTHING in your dossier needs to be in French and printed on A4 size paper, in triplicate if they want to take more than one copy (which isn’t unusual).
I love to use Post-It notes. I pick the brightly colored ones and use these to draw arrows, point things out, and make sure that their attention is on the correct part of the document. For example, a W2 form or tax document from the United States is confusing and unfamiliar to a French representative. With labels and post-it notes, I explain in French what is the gross revenues vs. net revenues.
Would you like to receive a list of all the documents I include and how I label them correctly? Perhaps you are interested in more detailed information on my visa dossier experience, tactics, and techniques? Head on up to the link in my bio to sign up. 👆👆👆
