Unless she's from an EU country, she's most likely going to have to return home to apply for a long-stay visa before she can establish residence of any sort in France. Check the web-site of the French consulate in her country to see if she'd qualify for a family reunification visa - though I'm not sure if adult children are included in this category.Thanks for your Reply Bev, I really appreciate your response. Her father got nationality by residence. And the exact scenario is, she is in Paris right now in a short stay Visa. Is there any other ways to claim a residence while she is residing in Paris? Her father owns an apartment in paris. If you need any details i can get it from her.
