I was just wondering if anyone knew how long I can go back to the UK to live and work without losing my french residency as I’m currently looking to go back to England for only a year, to then come back and live in France full time again.
I have a 5 year carte de séjour and I was wondering if this is possible.
I heard something on France Inter yesterday or possibly Monday morning about cutting the time people can be out of France yet still get benefits, I don’t know what it now but people will have to be in the country for 9 months/year. You may get the info on replay, it was le 7 - 9.30 la matinale with Nicolas Demorand and Léa Salamé
Welcome to @cheeseandcrackers and I am pleased to see that you seem to have the information that you need.
So I hope you won’t mind me tagging along with a little question of my own.
I am going to England via the tunnel in 3 weeks time, the first time since the rules for entry and re-entry were changed post Brexit and have a very simple question.
As a British national, long term resident, and worker, with a 10 year CdS, what do I have to carry in order to get out and back in?
Passport, CdS, ticket. All obvious, but is there anything else to remember apart from trying to not get my passport stamped?
Your Mairie might know… and/or might be able to help you get the answer…
Frankly, I think 12 months out of France, while you don’t have Permanent status… is a bit of a gamble… but let’s hope it works out ok for you.
