Citizenship process easy
After the ghastly Brexit vote, I thought I’d better apply for French citizenship, as I have been living and working here for over 20 years.
I posted the application on December 20th 2016 and received a receipt around the 10th January 2017.
With this document, I also got an invitation to the “interview” at the Prefecture on 28th February 2017. The interview started on time, lasted exactly 30 minutes and was extremely friendly. I was asked questions from the Livret du Citoyen, that every applicant should learn!
At the end, I was told that the file now passes to Paris for “further processing”.
To my great surprise (and pleasure), on July 20th, I received a letter confirming that my application was approved and the grant of citizenship was already published in the “Journal Officiel”.
