Carte de Sejour (we can no longer afford to ignore applying) - Experience the good, the bad and the indifferent!

Check if you have a Second Nationality available!

Before applying for a carte, check if you may have a right to a second nationality. I am lucky enough to have had an Irish mother and it was easier, and cheaper, than applying for a British one. Papers required were minimal, staff helpful. Belgian citizenship for a young friend working in Brussels, was harder. She speaks four European languages well, but Dutch was also required. Regards J.W.
