Can I come back to India and return to France with a Recipisee?

 

 

A non-European Union student, who only has a receipt of a first request for a residence permit (récépissé de première demande de carte de sejour):

-    Cannot travel to India and return to France unless he has applied for a Visa de retour from France

  •     If a student does not apply for a Visa de retour from France he will have to apply for a Visa de retour from India
  •     Very Important : in the above case, applicant will be required to give a valid reason for applying from India instead of France.

 

A non-European Union student, who has a residence permit i.e residence card (carte de sejour) or renewal receipt (recepisee de demande de renouvellement de titre de sejour)

  •     Do not need a visa de retour
  •     Can travel outside France and come back to France with the residence card or the renewal receipt.
