Since 1 June 2009 consulates have issued certain categories of foreign national (spouses of French nationals coming under the "private and family life" heading, temporary workers with a contract of less than 12 months, students, visitors and salaried persons employed for less than 12 months) with long-stay visas valid for one year, exempting them from the obligation to apply for a residence permit.

After entering France, the foreign national must go to the regional OFII directorate which covers the place of residence, taking the passport containing the long-stay visa, proof of address in France, a medical certificate and a photograph, and must pay a fee.

The foreign national is only authorised to reside in France once he has completed these formalities, within three months of entry into France, as attested by the OFII's ink stamp.

Regional directorates: Amiens, Besançon, Bordeaux, Bobigny, Caen, Cayenne, Cergy, Clermont-Ferrand, Créteil, Dijon, Grenoble, La Réunion, Lille, Limoge, Lyon, Marseille, Metz, Montpellier, Montrouge, Nantes, Nice, Orléans, Paris, Pointe-à-Pitre, Poitiers, Rennes, Reims, Rouen, Strasbourg, Toulouse.

New regional directorates, once accredited, may subsequently be added to the above list.
