The French government has decided to implement a tax called CVEC (95€ for academic year 2022-2023) for all French and international students who pay tuition fees in France for the academic year. This tax is aimed at developing welfare services in the universities. The student must pay this tax individually, by credit card and directly with the French administration. We won’t deliver the student card until they show us the payment receipt for the tax.
