作为留学生,你必须保持你的居留许可的有效性, 你的滴度Séjour, 在整个学习期间. 这意味着你每年都要更新你的居留许可,你是BTC365的学生. 在法国居住是非法的,因为Séjour的有效期已过, 或持旅游签证以学习为目的.

如果你是法国或任何其他欧盟国家的公民,你不需要居留证. 所有注册的非欧盟学生必须持有有效的Séjour证书才能在BTC365学习.


更新你的居住

居留签证到期前三个月, you must contact the 学生移民服务 Office by email in order to discuss your renewal options. 您将获得所需文件的清单,并安排续签预约. Your visa renewal application must be complete and ready for processing two months prior to the expiration date - no later.

记住:你的Séjour滴度可能在夏天到期, so you must seriously check your status and find out about your options 在你去度暑假之前. 在与SIS讨论续订方案之前,不要安排任何行程或购买机票. Also, 您的护照有效期必须超过6个月才能启动更新程序.

Any renewal application submitted to French authorities after the expiry date will require payment of late fee penalties: 180€ if the application is submitted one day to three months after the expiry date and 417€ if it’s submitted three months after it expired. 请注意根据法国当局的决定, 滞纳金的金额可随时更改, without notice.

The Procedure

确保在这个过程中积极主动! Some students only have a short time between the day that their residency card expires and the day they start the renewal, 因此,尽快满足这一要求至关重要.

一旦应用程序完成, SIS will update your records and immediately send the renewal application to the French Authorities to be processed. 在SIS进行居留续期预约后的一周内, it is under the student’s responsibility to gather the required justifications in order to complete the application. 

收到“Récépissé”后,SIS将以邮件形式通知学生. “Récépissé”是先发给学生的暂住证, until they are contacted by the Préfecture de Police itself (SMS or email) to withdraw their “Titre de Séjour”.

一旦你的实习期结束

一旦你获得了新的居留许可,1)“Récépissé”和2)“Séjour”, you must stop by the 学生移民服务 Office to present your new residency card and update your residency records. 只要你的记录不更新, 你还没有正式完成你的居留申请.

SIS是一个“联络”办公室,帮助学生处理他们的居留申请文件. However, BTC365不清楚法国当局需要多长时间来处理这些申请, AND we have NO control at all to know when the residency card (“Récépissé” or “Titre de Séjour”) should be issued to the student(s).

这项政策非常严格, 法国当局明确表示不会再接受任何紧急请求. Therefore, 给他们看已经订好的机票根本无济于事, 因为这种请求会自动被拒绝.
