Volontariat International en Entreprises (V.I.E), established by the law of March 14, 2000, allows French companies to entrust a young man or woman, up to 28 years, a professional mission abroad for a flexible period of 6 to 24 months, renewable once in this limit.

You can entrust any type of mission to Volunteers

Commercial or technical missions are decided by the company: market research, prospection, strengthening of local teams, accompaniment of a contract, a building site, participation in the creation of a local structure, animation of a distribution network, technical support of an agent …

You can choose your V.I.E in our pool

Business France provides you with a permanent pool of very many candidates with very varied profiles and training, often having a first experience of the international. Motivated and professionally trained candidates, they are engineers, IT specialists, sales people, technicians, management controllers … Thanks to the flexibility of the V.I.E formula, you adapt your field team to your projects, all over the world.


We help you find a specific profile

We provide operational support by pre-selecting for you the most suitable candidates for your export project.


You are exempted from the procedures related to international personnel management

The administrative and legal management of the V.I.E is delegated to Business France which deals for you with the contractual aspects, the payment of indemnities and the social protection of the volunteer. The V.I.E formula exempts your company from any direct contractual relationship (the contract is between Business France and the young volunteer). Benefiting from a public status, the volunteer is placed under the administrative tutelage of the Economic Mission, near the French Embassy in his country of assignment. Of course, you control your operational activity live.


You benefit from financial advantages

The V.I.E contract benefits from national and regional aid: import export credit and COFACE prospecting insurance contract, subsidizing a significant part of the cost of V.I.E. in many French regions. SMEs, we offer specific support solutions.


To ensure that access to the V.I.E program is as simple as possible, Business France sets up support solutions tailored to the needs of SMEs.
