    Yes Barty.  That is the latest unambiguous statement from the French at the top of the food chain.  Full details will be made available as soon as the UK crashes out and most likely will be a possibility of an online application.  Fingers crossed.

    Documentation proving date of arrival in France could be tricky. With Freedom of Movement, there’s no entry stamp on a passport and if one didn’t choose to register with the mairie on one’s arrival and house purchase in a commune, there’s no proof there either.

    The important thing is that you got here in time so I guess the first payslip you can find or for self employed  the ubiquitous extrait de Kbis which seems good for a multitude of purposes

    Copies of bank statement can also tell a lot about you’re permanent stay in France. The mairie wrote us a attestation de domicile, the prefecture was happy about this paper.

    We provided impots for the 5 years needed to obtain a 10 year CdS.There was a local meeting ,just before Christmas,attended by local expat representatives and certain French officials.An up to date list of requirements was provided,it was all very helpful.Surely proof of being a French tax paying resident is what you need to show how long you’ve been here.

    Depends on the prefecture, which I admit, I find absolutly ridiculous, the rules should be the same for everyone on the French territory. For exemple, in Morbihan, fingers print are taken. Some of them could be very “nitpicking”, where some others are “easy” to deal with. In anycase, you don’t need to fear making an application if you’re genuinly been here for over 5 years, following the rules, like declaring your taxes. In Gleaner’s case it’s more likely somebody in the administration made a mistake and obviously don’t want to admit it.

    @babeth, we have a local government official working on our behalf, and she is incredulous  that we haven’t had it yet.  She did go on to say, that getting an answer back, even to her, about the matter, is proving incredibly difficult, and nigh on impossible. The best I have got so far is that if I don’t get it by  the end of July, to re-apply!

    We went to the prefecture in Lorient. There we were told that the only did renewals not first applications.

    The lady kindly looked at appointments in Vannes, however Vannes is closed for appointments until the end of June. This not their fault though it is because of the UK. So we will just have to be patient.

    To be fair I think it was my error when making this appointment.

    It’s causing Mrs G an incredible amount of stress BV. Notwithstanding my accident back in Mid Feb and a raft of other footdragging with regards other matters, none of which we have been at fault for. :cry:

    @jivedance, it was a reissuance for me.

    I had a phone call yesterday, from the mairie, about Bill’s carte d’électeur. It seems there is a problem because he didn’t ask for a deregistration elsewhere, but she couldn’t tell me where. Bill has never been registred elsewhere in France I told her. She said everything is now centralized by INSEE, in a big database, and they can’t reach anybody on the phone when there is a mistake. She was going to try to call her software hotline to see if something can be done. I think there is no hope to be sorted out. I am fed up with all the new dematerialisation system that has been put in place in every administration. I spend my days swearing in my office, doing things 3 times and printing out all the proofs I can, which is handy when the pension office ask you to pay money you don’t owe ! Took 5 months for them to cancel the bill. That’s it, people complained about the states workers, now they removed a lot of them and replaced them with clever online software, that does not work. And the sad thing is there is nobody anymore at the end of the phone to complain to.

    Flippin’ ‘eck. The requirements just before Christmas are no longer relevant. The decree was issued during the past week and massively reduces the requirements required. While I’m sure that evidence of paying tax would be an acceptable form of proof it is no longer a requirement.

    The decree outlined in the article I linked in my earlier post

    Hopefully it will be simpler under the new rules

    42 weeks later and we have just recieved a telephone call from an official that I should be receiving by sms in 3 weeks time notification to inform us that I can go and pick up my CDS. :yahoo:

    What a wait B-)

    It is a welcome development considering what we have been going through these last 4 months :wacko:

    No explanations or apologies for the delay though, but I guess that is par for the course.

    And come tonight, if things go as we hope, it will transpire that I won’t need it anyway.
