I am an Algerian national

Algerian scientists are subject to a special bilateral agreement. You must obtain your residence permit through the prefecture.

 

Procedure for requesting your residence permit

Within the two months following your arrival in France, you must go to the local prefecture of your place of residence to submit an application dossier for your residence permit.

If your dossier is complete, you will receive an acknowledgement of receipt of your first request for a residence permit. This document will allow you to legally reside and work in France (while awaiting the issuance of your residence permit).

Please note: This receipt does not grant you the right to travel after the validity of your visa. You must await the issuance of your residence permit to once again be able to travel.

You will receive your scientific residence permit within 3 months following the submission of your dossier. Your residence permit must be picked up at the prefecture in-person.

 

Procedure for renewing your residence permit

Your scientific residence permit must be renewed at the local prefecture of your place of residence. A renewal application dossier must be submitted to the prefecture two months prior to the expiration of your current residence permit.

If your dossier is complete, you will receive an acknowledgement of receipt of your request for a residence permit renewal.  You will receive your new residence permit within 3 months following your dossier’s submission. The new permit must be picked up in-person at the prefecture.

You will be required to pay a €269 tax when picking up your new residence permit.

For all subsequent renewals, you must follow the same procedure, submitting your renewal request within two months of the date of expiration of your current residence permit.
