The Force Behind France Expat Assistance

Introducing Sarah MacGilchrist


Sarah MacGilchrist BA (Hons)

Sarah has lived most of her adult life in France, after moving there armed with a language degree in the 1980’s. Following a career in IT managing the administration and communication, Sarah identified a need for  a service helping expats navigate their way through French bureaucracy. She did her research and then put her business plan into action.

In 2018 she formed her company, French Expat Assistance, and set off in earnest to build a portfolio of clients. Sarahs’ intimate knowledge of the bureaucracy that daunts almost all new arrivals to the country, has seen demand for her services grow exponentially.

Sarah takes great pride in delivering for her clients, and the feedback from them supports just how effective she is. The main difference in choosing Sarah to get things done, is that she adopts a comprehensive policy of oversight, and ensures that her clients end point is always achieved.

Sarah worked so hard in helping me get my long term work visa. Her knowledge and understanding of the French system and protocols required to get approved was so reassuring.

Sarah helped us with our household connections. I could not have done this myself from Australia. Great service, professional and affordable.

I’ve used France Expat Assistance , and Sarah took all the headache and agro out of the French Bureaucracy for me.. Really helpful, patient and kind.. Would recommend to anyone.
