Default Rumour Has It....Residence

I received this link recently with regard to a fast track procedure for UK citizens seeking residency in France. Does anyone have any further info on this?? Thanks

Well, technically, one does not apply for "residency." One applies for a residence permit, a Titre de Séjour. Other than that, I do not see anything different than the information being made available by organizations like RIFT and FranceRights. I didn't see anything that would suggest "fast-tracking."

FYI, the article is out-of-date, the WA CDS application web site has been delayed until mid-October.

If you mean that it is slightly easier (all on line etc) than it has been then yes. We are all eagerly awaiting the opening date (as berkinet said) now the 15th October and nothing to be done until then!

I think they are using the term in comparison with the usual process of going into the Préfecture in person, with all that that involves.

Could you please post an official link to that information.

It was Berkinet who first said mid-October, though the site still says 1 October

Saisine des services de l'Etat par voie électronique - BREXIT - Update of the online residence permit request service for British citizens residing in France

and service public says during October.

Service-Public may say different things in different places; they have many web pages which haven't been updated.

Here they also still say Oct 1st https://www.service-public.fr/partic...sdroits/F35032

I would have thought that a few months ago. But, I have seen a large number of posts from Brits to the effect of "... we plan to arrive and apply for residency in September and then apply for the CDS when the website opens."

There is definitely a mindset that some official act or action must take place to establish residency in France. Of course, this is folly as it doesn't adhere to the FoM rules which govern the citizen's rights portion of the Withdrawal Agreement. But, it seems many people want there to be a clear set of unambiguous criteria and rules that the French will steadfastly adhere to.
