Visa required for Canadian searching for work in France?
I plan on going to Antibes at the end of March to take my STCW95 course and search for a stew position aboard a yacht. I called a travel agent yesterday to book my flight but she told me I cannot fly to France with a one-way ticket because they will not let me into the country without a work visa or a return flight booked.
What are the visa requirements for Canadian citizens who are searching for work on a yacht in France? I have read a bit about the Schengen visa. Is this something I need to stay in the country or aboard a yacht long term? Can I get that visa without a job? If I get that visa, will it be possible to enter the country on a one-way plane ticket?
Please help. I am new to all this and don't want to end up in any sticky situations once I arrive. Thanks
Thanks Rose and Amira. I ALMOST booked a return ticket today so you just saved me some money!!!! Thanks
