What is the point in getting it?

As soon as you receive your pre-authorisation, you will benefit from the advice of a dedicated English-speaking AMF coach who will accompany you and answer your queries during the full authorisation process with the view to facilitate your domiciliation in France.

The AMF commits to deliver the full authorisation within two months after obtaining the pre-authorisation, provided that your application file is duly completed.
