The service we have received from French Connections HCB has been genuinely outstanding. We were amazed how consistently efficient, responsive, and pleasant all the team are. No hidden charges and they follow through on promises. Despite being inactif non S1 holders, my husband and I quickly got in the French health service as a result of their expertise. They took all the headaches away for us. I can’t recommend their services highly enough. Thank you French Connections HCB!
