Re: internship visa..

Hi Arielx,

Congratulations on getting the internship! I assume you are referring to the typical internship common in UN-affiliated international organizations.

If this is the case, then yes, subsequent internships will lead to you receiving a new carte de legitimation for the duration of the internship. Speaking from experience, this means that you will renew your permit every three months - a procedure that, unlike regular private sector permits, usually takes no longer than one-two weeks.

You will not have to leave the country in-between your permit renewals.

Note, however, that this is only valid for UN-affiliated bodies: if you want to take a stab at the private sector, you will have to apply for a Permit B, which, unlike the carte de legitimation, is subject to quote and is exceptionally difficult - though not impossible - to obtain for non-EU nationals.

Good luck!
