Carte de Séjour or Naturalisation?

Should you choose permanent residence or French citizenship?

     Once you’ve established residence in France for 5 years, you have the right to apply for a Carte de Séjour Permanent. A French permanent residence permit is bizarrely not permanent – it allows you to stay in France for 10 years. It’s renewable and you will need to reapply ; you can’t vote in Presidential elections or hold public office.

     If you opt to become a French citizen you will also become a citizen of the European Union (EU), with all the accompanying rights (like voting in French Presidential elections). You don’t have to give up your own nationality if you become a French citizen: you can have dual British/French citizenship.

     Anybody who has lived continuously in France for 5 years may apply for French citizenship “by decree”.
