Carte de sejour on line application delayed


If you were looking forward to using the online system for applying for a carte de séjour, you’ll have to wait a little longer yet.

The date given a few months ago for the system to go live, was mid October.  Very little information was given about how the system would work.

The campaign group France Rights says the online system is still being tested and staff at prefectures around the country are currently being trained on how it works.  A new go live date of sometime in November has been suggested, after the UK is currently set to leave the EU.

A grace period of six months has been given for people to apply for a carte de séjour after Brexit, so every day counts now.  People waiting to use the online system before Brexit will now have to think again.
