As Brexit inches closer, many British people living in France are nervous about having to reveal their income to French authorities in order to gain a residence permit.
Their fear is that the amount they earn won't meet the minimum resources necessary to qualify for Carte de Séjour in France and that as a result they will be kicked out of the country.
However, what we don't know is what the minimum requirements will be in either a deal or no-deal scenario. For a no-deal scenario these are set to be announced in a decree that will be released by the French government.
We do at least have some guidelines to go on.
At the moment, the income requirements to qualify for a Carte de Sejour for the British, and other nationalities belonging to the EU, vary according to your situation.
“We hope that the amounts used for current residents will be those carried forward into the decree, but obviously don't have certainty on that,” Kalba Meadows from Remain in France Together told The Local. “As to how closely they stick to them … it's complicated!”
For example, if you're living alone and do not have children, you must earn at least €550.93 a month and that goes up to €943.28 if you have one child.
Similarly if you live with your partner, you must bring in €826.40 as a household and this goes up to €991.68 if you have one child.
You can see the full list for those under 65 in the table below from the official government website.
If you are over 65 and live alone you must bring in at least €868.20 or €1,347.88 as a household if you live with your partner. These income requirements can also be found on the government website.
