Living France - - What's New -

The num­ber of re­quests for French cit­i­zen­ship from Brits liv­ing in France tripled last year, ac­cord­ing to in­te­rior min­istry fig­ures. Le Monde news­pa­per re­vealed that ap­pli­ca­tions for cit­i­zen­ship rose from 385 to 1,363 in 2016, an in­crease of 254%. Although the surge in ap­pli­ca­tions re­flects con­cerns about be­ing able to live in France fol­low­ing Brexit, the num­ber of re­quests is not that high when com­pared to the num­ber of Bri­tons liv­ing in France. Fig­ures for this year have not yet been re­leased but they are ex­pected to rise even fur­ther.
