I am currently in France on a visitor carte de sejour. It is a one year visa. I am coming up on its expiration and I am still in the process of extending it/applying for a different one. I have not yet received the invitation to the prefecture for renewing my visa, therefore have no proof that I am in the midst of this process.
What happens if I stay in France after my visa expires? Does the 90 day visitor visa kick in? Do I have to leave France before it expires? If I choose to stay and wait for the prefecture's invitation, will I be able to leave France on an expired visa?
Thank you for any help,
