The Palaiseau Sub-Prefecture, in charge of issuing residence permits, informing partners about changes in the legal environment of this mission. The Palaiseau Sub-Prefecture provides staff so that GATE users can take all their steps related to the residence permit directly to GATE.

En détail

The sub-prefecture of Palaiseau will receive you at the GATE for all your procedures related to your residence permit:

– for a first residence permit (students and researchers);

– for a renewal of residence permit;

– for a change of status (the appointment for this procedure must be made by the person concerned directly on the sub-prefecture’s website).


During the opening phases of the GATE, students, teacher-researchers and employees in the Paris-Saclay perimeter must contact the referent of their host institution, if necessary, go directly to the GATE premises in Orsay for administrative procedures. Outside these periods we invite you to go directly to the Sub-Prefecture of Palaiseau. (Avenue du Général de Gaulle, 91125 Palaiseau)
