Traveling with a receipt
Back to France with your residence permit receipt is not always guaranteed from the airport in Yaounde. Beware.
If it is normally possible to return to France when traveling with a receipt of renewal or of a duplicate residence permit under certain conditions, we found increasingly difficult to get out of Cameroon.
Many people could not embark on their flight back, whatever the airline. A return visa was required for them.
We draw your attention to the fact that for such a visa, the consulate shall conduct an investigation in connection with the prefectural authorities who issued your residence permit.
The time can sometimes be long and are not controllable by the consulate, forcing you to push your return.
We invite you, as far as possible, to avoid returning to Cameroon with your single receipt.
