A French passport (French: Passeport français) is an identity document issued to French citizens. Besides enabling the bearer to travel internationally and serving as indication of French citizenship (but not proof; the possession of a French passport only establishes the presumption of French citizenship according to French law), the passport facilitates the process of securing assistance from French consular officials abroad or other European Union member states in case a French consular is absent, if needed.

Every French citizen is also a citizen of the European Union. The passport, along with the national identity card allows for rights of free movement and residence in any of the states of the European Union, European Economic Area and Switzerland. French Passport for sale

History

The history of the French passport can be traced to documents issued in the 19th century.[vague]

Types

Passports are valid for 10 years for applicants aged 18 or over and 5 years for applicants under the age of 18. Optical passports (older) have no sign under the word “Passeport” on the front page. Electronic passport contains an embedded chip and has the chip logo under the word “Passeport”. Biometric passeports are the most recent ones and are decorated as the electronic passports but the word “Passeport” is underlined.

Front cover

Unlike those from most other EU countries which are burgundy, ordinary passports have a Bordeaux-red front cover, with the national emblem of France emblazoned in the centre of the front cover. The word “PASSEPORT” (Passport) is inscribed below the coat of arms and “Union européenne” (European Union), “République française” (French Republic) above. The “e-passport” cover has a microchip symbol at the bottom. On the biometric variant of e-passports, the word “PASSEPORT” is underlined. French passports use the standard EU design, with the standard passport containing 32 pages.
