Getting a carte vitale in France as a foreigner
After more than a year, I finally received a social security number from the French Assurance Maladie. I am employed since 15 months and pay my social security fees every months but were not eligible to use them. While I find this behaviour of the French administration troubling, I am planning to write some information about what you need to get it as a foreigner. Especially the apostilled certificat de naissance can be difficult to obtain. Meanwhile here is a good description of a similar case and some tips about the application process.
