Extension of expired visas and residence permits [fr]

The validity of French residence permits, long-stay visas, and receipts for applications to renew residence permits expiring between 16 March and 15 May 2020 has been extended for three months. If you have one of these documents and are stranded outside of France due to disruptions in air travel, you will therefore be able to enter or return to France once the situation allows.

If you are in France on a short-stay visa which will soon expire and cannot return to your country of origin (because that country has prohibited entry from France for health reasons or because flights have been suspended, for example), you may, in cases of justified urgency, benefit from an extension of your short-stay visa for up to 90 days or be issued a provisional residence permit. You are invited to contact the prefecture of your current location to extend your short-stay visa or receive a provisional residence permit.
