Renewal of residence permit

Entry and residence formalities

Obtaining a residence permit concerns all international students, with the exception of European Union nationals, who wish to stay in France. When a student decides study in France, he or she will need to obtain a long-stay (D) visa from the French Embassy.

Under no circumstances may the type C tourist visa be converted into a residence permit in the territory. The D visa (with a duration of 3 months for Algerian nationals, and ranging from 4 to 12 months for others) is necessary and compulsory. It allows you to remain in France for the duration of your studies, provided that you have completed the relevant procedures.

The Prefecture of the Pyrénées-Orientales and the University of Perpignan Via Domitia have signed an agreement which allows the student to have a special welcome at the University of Perpignan.

First time Application or Renewal

The first application for a residence permit: who? when? how?
