BREXIT in English

What you need to know

From the 1st July 2021, every UK citizen resident in France must have or must have applied for a residency permit.  For UK citizens who already have residency permits with an expiration date after 30th June 2021, these remain valid until 30th June 2021.  A new permit, applied for on-line before this date, will still be necessary to reflect that UK citizens are no longer citizens of the EU.

UK citizens who do not have residency permits MUST apply for these before 30th June 2021.

In both cases, application must be made using the French government website which you will find in French by clicking here or in English by clicking here.

The application must be made on-line and there are FAQs to help you if you encounter a problem.  There is also a contact email address for additional concerns here:


If you do not have access to a computer then your prefecture should have a special desk with a computer for you to be able to make your application.  In addition, the following associations are offering practical support:
