Guide for Undocumented Migrants

Last update : August 2018

Source: la Cimade.

This booklet contains general advice to reduce the risks of expulsion: how to prepare your application for a residence permit, what precautions to take, what to do if you are issued with an obligation to leave the territory, how to reduce the risks of arrest and finally how to react in the event of a police check, house arrest or placement in a detention centre.

In 2017, an addendum and an erratum have been added to take into account the legislative changes introduced by the law of 7 March 2016 on the rights of foreigners in France. On the other hand, the booklet is not up to date with the latest changes brought about by the Asylum and Immigration Act of 2019.
