Foreign students to France can now receive a multi-year residence permit

Share   

​New law: Foreign students to France can now receive a multi-year residence permit ("carte de séjour pluriannuelle") after the expiry of their first residence permit of one year. This document, issued for a maximum period of four years, will remain valid until the end of their studies.

This new bill, regarding foreigners' rights, was passed in the French Parliament on January 26, 2016.
 
Until this new bill was passed, the multi-year residence permit was only for certain master's and doctoral students.
 
Once completing their studies, foreign students can obtain a temporary residence permit ("autorisation provisoire de séjour" / APS) valid for one year, if they have at least a master's degree in a nationally  accredited institution of higher education.
 
The APS is designed to help the student to complete their training with initial work experience or embark on a business creation project in an area corresponding to his/her training.
