V.I.E program

The V.I.E. (French International Internship Program) is a solution to recruit youg people aged 18 to 28 for missions abroad. 

The French Internation Internship program (V.I.E) is a quick and easy HR solution for any business wishing to set up in a foreign country. This system, managed by Business France, is open to young French citizens as well as to young nationals of the European Economic Area aged 18 to 28 for a professional mission abroad.

The V.I.E solution allows you to:

  • Control your budget : exemption from social contributions in France, possibility of financing your V.I.E
  • Delegate administrative management to Business France
  • Have a flexible HR option : transfers from one country to another, 6 to 24 month contract, pooling of the cost and time of your V.I.E by several companies


Expenses related to a V.I.E most often benefit from national and regional aid : import-export credit, export development loan from Bpifrance, subsidy coverage of a large part of the cost of V.I.E in many French regions, etc...


V.I.E. Stimulus Check

The V.I.E stimulus check, or "Chèque Relance VIE" covers € 5,000 for the implementation of a new V.I.E mission or the extension of an ongoing mission for a minimum of 12 months. It is a real lever in order to mobilize young talents for the international development of companies.
