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

As soon as you arrive and within the first 2 months following your arrival at the latest, you must contact Espace Ulys for having an appointment with us. The day of the appointment, we will check your file and we will arrange an appointment at the Préfecture du Rhône so you can submit your application for a residence permit.

During this appointment at the Préfecture and only if your application is complete, you will be issued in a first step a receipt of your first request for a residence permit ("récépissé"). This receipt 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 be notified by SMS of the availability of your residence permit (approximately 2 months after the deposit). You must then contact Espace Ulys to have an appointment arranged at the Préfecture for the withdrawal of your residence permit.
