Arrival in your institution
The referent person in your establishment will help you constitute your Prefecture file and take an appointment. In case you have no referent person, this work can be done by the PISA staff on the GATE platform.

At this stage, your file will be checked by the prefectoral staff. Taking advantage of this step, social actors will guide you to complete other necessary procedures for your new life in France (Residence permit, health coverage, insurances….)

“A very welcoming and receptive place, this space has encouraged me in my administrative procedures which until now had frightened me a lot. Thank you for your listening and your advice. I hope that it will be/will always be such a space in Essonne, especially in Massy to guide foreign students.
Thank you for existing”. Liliane 🙂 December 2019
