Legal information

This page is dedicated to the legal notices, which have become mandatory since the law of 21 June 2004.

The services provided by the GATE Portal

The website is an information and appointment tool for certain administrative procedures for international nationals of higher education and research institutions in the Plateau de Saclay.

International nationals will find on the GATE portal all the information on the administrative procedures to be carried out before their arrival in France. They will also have the opportunity to make appointments with GATE partners and thus attend interventions or private interviews in order to secure their administrative path.

The display of legal notices is an obligation under the law of 21 June 2004 for trust in the digital economy.
