ABOUT US

French Administration for Expats
THE CREW COMPANY

Founded by a South African expat who has spent the last few years navigating the murky waters of French administration, The Crew Company now wishes to pass its combined knowledge on to those in need. Settling in a new country can be a daunting exercise, made worse by not speaking the language, understanding the culture or way things are done. Years of experience dealing with these matters as well as a bilingual ability to understand the exact components required to solve problems, means that a simple stress-free solution is on hand when you find yourself looking for advice. With a profound understanding of international culture, The Crew Company helps expats seamlessly integrate into life in France, giving assistance and advice on an array of administrative issues. There is no reason to feel anxious when facing a problem ‘you would easily have been able to solve at home’, we are here to untangle the often confusing French Administration System and help you enjoy the exciting experience of living in a new country. Even if you are just looking for a referral, for an English speaking banker, insurance company or doctor, please feel free to contact us and we will help you out.
