France has framed a new immigration policy to attract skilled workers, said Jean-Yves Lavoir, envoy of the French ministry of immigration.

Lavoir, on a weeklong visit to India to spread awareness about the new rules, said three types of work and residence permits had been introduced.

Skills and talents permit will enable the holder to engage in a salaried or business activity in France. Intra-company transfer allows employees expatriated by their company to work for a French subsidiary or be reassigned within the same group.

A new measure will enable students to gain professional experience after completing studies in France, Lavoir said.
