IMPACT – LOW
What is the change? The Paris Prefecture now requires appointments for residence permit applicants to provide biometrics.
What does the change mean? Applicants in Paris must appear in person twice, once to submit their fingerprints and other biometrics, and again to collect their residence permit card.
Background: Under the new process, the resident permit is submitted on behalf of the applicant, and within a few weeks the assignee then attends an appointment at the prefecture to register his or her biometrics. Once the residence permit is issued, the assignee must appear in person to collect it.
BAL Analysis: While the biometrics appointment requires an additional visit in Paris, it is not expected to lengthen timelines.
