  2. 2. A. FORMALITIES FOR & IN THE HOST COUNTRY 1. Document Checklist Even for a short visit as a student, you will need:  Passport or identity card for European Economic Area (EEA/EU) members,  Visa for non-European students, except Swiss nationals,  3 passport size photographs (3 minimum and not scanned, regular portrait size 4.5 x 4.5 cm, no colored background, bare-headed, no hat),  Birth certificate, established in your own country, translated into French (for non EU-students) and certified (1 original and a minimum of 3 copies: 1 for the residence permit, 1 for the Office of Student Affairs, 1 for the housing subsidies),  Medical insurance certificate or European Health Insurance Card for EU students,  Mandatory requirement for non-EU students coming to France to study formore than 3 months to subscribe to the French Student Social Security Scheme (LMDE or SMERRA: 200€ will be asked on arrival for our National Health Insurance),  Blood group card (if you have one),  Civil liability insurance certificate “Responsabilité civile” (can be bought in France upon arrival) approximate cost : 15€,  Proof from your bank specifying your financial resources (minimum 460€/month),  Car insurance certificate, if applicable. 2. Types of student visas A. Short term visas Short term visa for studies: It is only valid for a stay not exceeding 3 months (language instruction courses for instance). This type of visa does not allow you to apply for a resident permit. It cannot be renewed. Short term visa for entrance exams (visa “étudiant-concours”) This type of visa allows you to sit for an exam. If you pass the exam, you are allowed to stay in France and apply for a Resident Permit “carte de séjour” without having to return to your home country. B. Long term visas Long term temporary visa for studies: It allows you to study between 3 to 6 months in higher education. This type of visa does not allow you to apply for a Resident Permit. It cannot be renewed. You are entitled to stay in France for a maximum of 6 months. Long term visa for studies: Effective June 1, 2009 a new type of visa called “Visa Long Séjour valant Titre de Séjour – VLS-TS” can be issued. It applies to students coming to study in France for the first time and for more than 3 months. It is issued for a full year. This new type of visa is delivered by the French Consulates. Together with the visa, the Consulate gives a stamped document entitled “Demande d’attestation OFII” accompanied with explanatory instructions. Procedure to follow upon entry in France:  Your passport is to be stamped by the Border Police,  Within 3 months of your stay in France, the “Demande d’attestation OFII” is to be sent by registered mail to the OFII office located in Grenoble together with a copy of the pages of your passport indicating your name, date of birth, the visa stamp and the entry stamp.
  3. 3. The OFII will acknowledge receipt of your documents and will give you an appointment to validate your visa at a further date. You will need to present:  Your valid passport,  Proof of residency (electricity bill, rental receipt),  A photo,  A medical certificate (if you have already undergone the medical check-up requested by the OFII–this is very often done just prior to the administrative appointment),  A 55€ tax stamp “timbre fiscal” must be bought in a tobacco shop or at the local Tax Office “Trésorerie Générale”. Finally non-EEA students who wish to study for more than one year will have to go to the local Government "Préfecture" 2 months prior to the end of validity of their VLS-TS and ask for a Temporary Resident Permit "carte de séjour temporaire". For further information, please consult the following Web sites: Campus France (www.campusfrance.org/fr): all procedures for foreigners, Préfecture de Savoie (www.savoie.pref.gouv.fr/Vos-demarches-en-ligne): Regional website to help foreigners with French administration, French Foreign Ministry (www.diplomatie.gouv.fr): Read through the “Espace étudiants”, OFII (www.ofii.fr) : “visa de long séjour, titre de séjour”, Service public (www.service-public.fr/particuliers/): French website to help foreigners with French administration. 3. Social Security, Insurance and Health Foreign students have access to the Student Social Security System under the same conditions as French students, that is to say, they must be enrolled in a higher education establishment giving access to the Student Security System and be under the age of 28. The Student Social Security System is obligatory. It is administrated by 2 student complementary health organisations (SMERRA and LMDE), one of which should be selected when you enrol. Affiliation to the Social Security System takes place when you enrol at the school and requires payment of a contribution of 200€ (2010/11 academic year). Citizens from the EEA and Switzerland who have either the European Health Insurance Card or a certificate providing subscription to private insurance are of course exempt. Non EU-students must subscribe to the French Social Security Student scheme. Mutuelle des Etudiants (LMDE) 14 bis Fg Reclus - 73000 Chambéry ☎ 04 79 75 18 99 Email : www.lmde.com SMERRA 123 rue Michaud - 73000 Chambéry ☎ 04 79 33 34 34 Email : www.smerra.fr Health Care: In France you need to choose your own general practitioner and declare his/her name to the Social Security System. Doctors generally see patients by appointment only. A basic appointment with a general practitioner costs 23 €. Make sure you choose a doctor who is “conventionné” this means that he/she is officially listed as a general practitioner in the social security system, otherwise you will not be totally reimbursed by the Social Security and the tariff will be higher. Please note the standard reimbursement is 70% of the doctor’s fees, less 1€, that is 14.40€, the remaining 30% can only be reimbursed if you take out a private insurance policy. Make sure you choose a suitable policy for all circumstances (Contact LMDE or SMERRA). Important note: If you do not declare your practitioner, you will only be reimbursed 30% of his/her tariff.
  4. 4. In order to buy most medication you will need a prescription that you must give to the chemist/pharmacist. Useful sites for more information: www.ameli.fr and www.118218.fr go to “je cherche”, enter –“médecins généralistes” + “Chambéry”- then go to “je trouve” Repatriation Insurance: Should you have a serious or long term health problem, it is highly recommended that you take out an insurance policy that would cover your repatriation. (This can only be done in your home country). Before coming to France, find out full details from your Social Security office or private insurer and make sure you will be fully covered for all risks when abroad. Home Insurance: All students renting accommodation must take out a home insurance policy (fire, flood damage etc). This is called “multi risque habitation”. Civil Liability Insurance: (third party and personal accident insurance, “Responsabilité civile”) - this is very often part of your home insurance -“multi- risque habitation”, which is compulsory in France. Approximate cost per year: 15€. You can buy it in your home country or upon arrival. 4. Useful numbers 5.

The IRO can also put you in contact with a few landlords who have flats for rent. Please enquire. 4. Housing benefits Benefits are available to almost anyone paying for rental accommodation. Once the lease is signed, application can be made to the “Caisse d’Allocations Familiales” – CAF (this can be done online). Benefits will be received after 3 to 6 weeks.  Aide Personnalisée au Logement “APL”: you must be renting a state-approved flat (meaning a state-recognized contract between the owner and the State whose number must appear on the lease).

The ALS is directly paid to the tenant unless there is a prior arrangement between him and the owner.

  11. 11. 5. Miscellaneous  Telephone service The country code to call someone in France is “00 33” and you need to dial the telephone number without the “0” at the beginning of the area code. Telephones can be installed easily and quickly for a fixed charge (about 50€, however students get a reduction). You can either rent a telephone from a phone company or you may purchase your own equipment (basic model from 20€). Either way, you will receive a bill every 2 months. You can save the cost of a technician if you know the name and the telephone number of the person who rented the apartment before. If you do not have a telephone at home, you can use public phone boxes, throughout the town. You need a phone card that you can buy in any post office or most newsagents or tobacconist’s (120 units = 14.90€ and 50 units = 7.50€). There is a telephone box at the school. Finally you can also buy a mobile phone: you can buy prepaid cards or take out a subscription. When signing a contract, the minimum period is often one year. However it is possible to cancel the contract earlier if you can prove that you are leaving France. For further information contact the different operators (Orange, SFR and Bouygues, etc.).  Mail The postage rate for France and for all the EC countries is 0.56€. But for non- European countries, you must go to the post office to have the letter/package weighed. A postal code has been assigned to every postal area in France. The number appears at the end of the address before the name of the city. For Chambéry, it is “73000”.  Electricity All the small appliances operate on 220 volts. So before purchasing an electrical appliance to be used in France, check the voltage ratings are compatible. Average electricity cost per month for one person: 20€. The electrical sockets are not necessarily the same in France, a travel adaptor must be bought if you do not use sockets Type C.
