Given the current situation linked to the Coronavirus pandemic, we would like to inform you about your rights and obligations.
France is currently under lockdown. If you are still in France, this means that you must abide by the government’s instructions and stay at home as much as possible.

All valid visas and residence permits that have already been issued are automatically extended by 3 months starting on 16th March 2020.
To date (20/03/2020), the French government has not yet announced any restrictions for international students in France to return to their home countries.
Nonetheless, you should consult the official websites of your home country to make sure that they will allow your return.

Don’t hesitate to contact your country’s embassy in France by phone or by e-mail for additional information.

Above all, it is a priority to stay confined at home as long as you have not yet found a solution for return travel.

Let’s act responsibly and show solidarity in this world-wide health crisis.
