Due to the current COVID-19 situation, and instructions from the French government, please know that the Prefecture, like the school, will be closed from today until further notice.
Regarding the school, you received messages about your courses and you noticed that we strive to do our best during this situation, which is complicated to deal with for everyone.
Regarding the VISA or resident permit renewals, we have been informed that the Prefecture will close its doors from today.
We are not able to tell you when appointments will start again.
If an appointment was scheduled for you, please note that it is now cancelled.
If you are in France, please be aware that you can stay with an expired resident permit or VISA. (this information was confirmed by the Prefecture: do not worry) Your appointment can’t happen because of the ongoing crisis.
If you are abroad:
In case of APS:
You have 4 years after your diploma to apply for APS . For that, you will have to come to France with a VISA « student/jobseeker ».
In case of student renewal:
you will be authorized by the Prefecture to come back to France. You will need a VISA “retour”.
All these instructions are for every individual’s health, and to stop the spread of this virus.
Like you, we don’t know when it will end, and when appointments can start again.
Please respect instructions for your health.
