Did you know that in earlier civilizations, branding and even disfigurement were used to mark the criminal for what he or she was? Luckily, these days we use fingerprinting to identify any misgivings as well as for general global mobility requirements! As civilizations evolve throughout time so do fingerprinting procedures in France.

We’ve been advised that applications for residence permits (titres de séjour) in Paris are heavily delayed due to a new fingerprinting requirement for some applicant categories. The delays are affecting both first time applications and renewals; companies should be aware that a five to six months lead-time is currently expected for obtaining residence permits.

To find out more about which applicant categories will be affected and how this will impact your company and residence permit application status our trusted network partner Peregrine take the time to outline all the important information.
