British people wishing to live in France can now apply for their post-Brexit residency cards. After months of delays caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, the website went live on October 19, 2020 with instructions in English and French.
If you have been living in France for over five years, you will be eligible for permanent residency and a 10-year renewable residency permit. If you have been living in France for fewer than five years you will be eligible for a five-year card. Brits have until 31 December 2020 to become legally resident in France*. They then have until 1 July 2021 to apply for a card and won’t be legally required to have a card until 1 October 2021.
