Union des Francais de lEtranger (UFE), translated as Union of French nationals living Overseas, was founded in 1927 to serve the interests of French nationals living abroad. Its role has widened since its conception and now the friends of France, Francophiles and Francophones, are invited to share the advantages woven by the UFE since its creation.
The UFE is an apolitical association and recognized to be a Public Utility with its registered office in Paris and 150 representations in over 100 countries. Twelve Senators are currently responsible to defend the interests of French nationals living abroad.
The mission of the UFE is to create an environment of Solidarity, Friendship and Participation between French, Francophiles and Francophones in the community; to facilitate the insertion of an expatriate into his new country and his/her possible return to France; to help people in difficulties and to contribute to their greater comfort.
The committee of the UFE, Queensland Section, is at your disposal to help you with all types of issues that may arise. If the questions exceed our competence the Head Office in Paris would be consulted. The committee also organises social and cultural activities.
The UFE has an Information Centre and exclusive Services.
