New Carte de Séjour System

Post by Nigel Bright »

I guess the latest lockdown will delay the distribution of the new cards, but out of interest has anyone had an invitation from the prefecture in Perpignan to attend a meeting to finalize the procedure?

I believe the préfectures are waiting for more info from the government. I think it also depends on when you applied online.

Our new cards arrived at the end of December by registered post. There was no need to visit the prefecture. Our old cards were issued in Feb 2019 and they must have used the photos and finger prints
they already had.

The prefecture only keep your photo and fingerprint data for a limited period because of the data protection laws. We applied in 2016 and had to attend another interview. However we did not need to supply any supporting documentation. The cards arrived in the post and the covering letter was, interestingly, dated Dec 24th. The process took little more than a month.
