Declaration made at the time of deposit of the instrument of approval, on 22 September 1983 - Or. Fr.

Concerned to ensure to the immigrant population in France the stability to which it may legitimately aspire, the French Government intends to promote as fully as possible opportunities for the migrant worker - in accordance with the provisions of Article 12 of the European Convention on the Legal Status of Migrant Workers - to be joined by his family.

This family reunion, however, can only be successful if the migrant worker has regular work and residence permits as well as adequate housing and steady resources.

Under these conditions, the French Government declares that any family reunion in France shall be subject to the provisions laid down in Article 12.2 of the Convention that is to say conditional upon "the migrant worker having steady resources sufficient to meet the needs of his family".
