You do not have the right to work during the first few months of your asylum claim in France. However, you can request an authorisation to salaried work 9 months after the submission of your asylum claim:

  • If the Ofpra has not made its decision regarding your asylum claim;
  • If an appeal has been submitted to the Cour nationale du droit d’asile (CNDA).

More information on how to obtain this work permit you can find in this guide of GISTI in various languages:
