The French government has increased the number of immigration application types that can be filed online through its portal.

Key Points:

  • As of Sept. 27, individuals may now submit the following applications and requests online:
    • Change of address.
    • Change of civil status and family situation.
    • Duplicate residence permit.
    • Temporary residence permit.
  • Beginning Oct. 11, individuals may request movement documents for children under the age of 18 online.

Additional Information: The expansion of online services is meant to streamline the application process while reducing in-person processing during the ongoing pandemic.

BAL Analysis: The platform is designed to save applicants time by making it easier to submit certain information only once in the application process; however, applicants should expect the possibility of delays during the transition to the new process.
