What are the chances of gaining a long stay visa in France if we have an income from online businesses and therefore have no need to apply for work in France?

Hi AndyDuBois,

The is a long-stay residence permit available for people who do not need to work in France. However, you will still need to provide a number of documents that support your case and prove that you have enough funds and assets to stay in France.

For an overview of the different types of long-stay permit available see the Expat Arrival's Visas for France page.

Good luck
