Firstly, I appologise for not downloading my photo, I put it down to age as I have tried so many times without success, but I hope to succeed before I reach my 80th.
My cart de sejure states it is permanent . Is this because my first card was issued in 1989, long before the borders were opened, and my wife and myself were interviewed twice at the French embassy before we were allowed to reside permanently in France.
I fail to understand why people are afraid of having their fingerprints on file. Every policeman has it done before he is accepted and I suspect many other occupations are subject to similar practices. If there is an objection, it has to be presumed that there are skeletons in the cupboard that have, or need to be kept hidden.
