Changes are coming on 1 January!
On 30 December 2020, the EU and UK signed a trade and cooperation agreement which will determine the rules that apply from 1 January 2021 to relations between the EU and the UK in a number of areas.
Since 1 January 2021, although an agreement has been reached, major changes must be taken into consideration.
The withdrawal agreement provides specific provisions for the right of residence and for the maintenance of the working conditions of British nationals settled in France before December 31, 2020. You had until June 30 October 4, 2021 to apply online for a status of resident. The online application submission site is now closed. Only the module relating to the filing of additional documents that may be requested by the prefecture examining services is still accessible.
People who have not completed their procedure online before this date (people subsequently reaching the age of majority, family members who arrived in France after September 30, 2021, people reporting a legitimate reason related to state of health, a case of force majeure, etc justifying the late submission of their application) must file with the counters of the prefecture of their place of residence.
You are concerned 1) if you are a British citizen who works in France or who wants to work in France; 2) if you wish to obtain a work permit to work in France; 3) if you are a self-employed worker who is a British citizen; or 4) If you are a British citizen posted to France.
