The French VIE Programme (Volontariat International en Entreprise) celebrates its 20th Anniversary!

The VIE programme was created by the Act of 14 March 2000 on civil volunteering.

French companies participating in this programme can give young people from France and the European Economic Area, aged 18 to 28 years, an assignment abroad for a period of 6 to 12 months which can be renewed once.

The VIE programme is an important means for companies to develop their business in new markets internationally, and thereby strengthen the French economic community across the globe. It is also an excellent opportunity for young people to gain solid professional experience internationally and develop their skills.


The Recovery Plan announced by the French Prime Minister, Jean Castex, includes an important Chapter to encourage Export based on three pillars:

i) Cheque relance export (export grant)

ii) Assurance Prospection (covered prospecting budget)

iii) Cheque VIE (VIE grant)

The VIE Cheque of 5,000 Euros is allocated to French SMEs in the limit of two VIEs per company.
