BRITISH EMBASSY PARIS
MONDAY, 3 FEBRUARY 2020
Good afternoon, Following my message last week, I wanted to let you know that the French Interior Ministry has updated its website on how UK citizens can secure their residency rights in France. The online portal originally built to receive residency applications in the event of no deal has now closed. An updated version will be re-launched at the start of July 2020. From this date, all UK nationals currently resident in France (or who become resident before 1 January 2021) will need to apply via this online portal for a new residence permit. This will formalise your rights under the Withdrawal Agreement between the UK and the EU.
If you applied on the previous portal, you will not need to re-apply – your application will be processed by the appropriate Préfecture before the deadline.
So the key message today is that you should wait for the updated French online portal to go live at the beginning of July 2020 – and if you haven’t yet applied, there will be time to make an application later this year and in early 2021.
We will continue to post updates here and on our other social media channels as soon as we get any further information.
With my very best wishes,
