A permanent residence permit (Carte de résident, CR) allows you to live permanently in France. Permits are valid for up to ten years and renewable. Any EU citizen living in France for five years or more, has the right to permanent residence and is not obligated to provide proof of their income or employment.

 

Every French citizen is also a citizen of the European Union. The passport, along with the national identity card allows for free rights of movement and residence in any of the states of the European Union and European Economic Area.
French passport (in French: Passeport français) is an identity document issued to French citizens. Besides enabling the bearer to travel internationally and serving as indication of French citizenship (but not proof; the possession of a French passport only establishes the presumption of French citizenship according to French law), the passport facilitates the process of securing assistance from French consular officials abroad or other European Union member states in case a French consular is absent, if needed.

The biometric passport is issued throughout the country from April 2013. An electronic chip and a radio-tag are incorporated in the cover. The information stored there is thus searchable at short range by an electromagnetic reader. This digitized information is the identity photograph, name, date of birth, nationality and passport number.
