I hold a carte de séjour that expires in October 2019. I left with my husband (he's French) to China for a year now and we are planning to go back to France this year. Does anyone here know if my card is still valid or do have to renew my card, since I left France for a year already?

Thank you in advance.

  • What's the validity of your carte de séjour ? – dda Aug 11 '18 at 15:19
  • @dda does your comment seek information that is absent from the clause "that expires in October 2019"? If so, what information does it seek? – phoog Aug 11 '18 at 15:29

  • I received the card last year and it is valid for 2 years. Will expire in October 2019. I don't know if there's a rule " if exit France for more than 6months so and so.. " the validity is gone. – Kll Aug 12 '18 at 3:24
  • @dda many countries provide for the automatic invalidation of residence documents after a period of absence of a certain length, regardless of the nominal validity, so pointing out the obvious here is just confusing. – phoog Aug 12 '18 at 4:43
