Reading through this discussion it makes me wonder just what some folks have to hide?? Mind you, they won't be alone - loads of UK immigrants in France have been trying to keep themselves under the radar for ages. Thankfully the time has come to flush them out, ensure they pay their way and stop them bragging about how they get around the 'system'... :lol: :lol: :lol:

I disagree.
And people disagree with you. Only time will tell.

Fitter, the first line of your post that I replied to is: "You think they don't know where we live? ", and that's why I replied as I did. Your subsequent responses to mine were about my place of birth, which I'm sure you will accept is nothing to do with where I live, so you changed the goalposts to make it seem as though I wasn't thinking things through. Poor sportsmanship, old chap!

And by then it may be too late. I think Debra is one of our members that has done more than some of us in keeping well informed on what is being said. I don’t have the time to read or go to whatever meetings that may have been possible to attend and openly admit to relying on people like her, taking the time to let the rest of us know what is being advised on both sides of the Channel.
Thank you Debra.

It wasn't intended as poor sportsmanship - As you have to show your passport as ID and it usually gets copied and filed with some details of where you live, I can't see how we can avoid leaving an ID trail behind us - unless somehow a person has two separate identities, like in a spy novel!
There are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns—the ones we don't know we don't know.

the only issue I can see is that if you apply for it now there won't be such a long wait later and it will spread out the workload for the prefectures. Whatever procedure is agreed after brexit who knows, but apart from a bit of reassurance I can't see how not applying now would disadvantage you. I'm still hoping that the whole thing won't happen, or a simplified procedure will be agreed as part of the negotiations so I'm not rushing to fill in forms just yet!

On the other thread I lightheartedly suggested a Carte de Sejour would
be an advantage , now it has been shown the official line is 'get a carte de sejour' .

I cannot understand why some don't understand that after Brexit the normal
rules of residence apply to a non eu country and this means you have to have
a carte de sejour to live here
common sense tells me that they ain't going to invalid all those cards already
issued, why would they?

Have we got a new ALBF?

You've summed up my position exactly plus I'm very much of the "why put off until tomorrow what you can put off until the day after" mindset. :oops:

How long does the process take on average (if there is one)
