I am a Russian citizen living in France and my current residence card is going to expire. In France one has to wait for up to 6 months for a new residence card to be delivered. While I wait I will have a paper document (with my photo) which serves as a temporary residence permit. This document does not have the same format as a residence card and thus cannot be used for an automatic identity check (I tried).
So I have several questions.
- Is there a way to prove my identity other than automatically in the application?
- What happens to my Revolut account if I don’t provide a new residence card once my current card expires?
- Is there a time period after which my account might be closed for not being used? In this case, how do I retrieve my funds if I don’t have access to my account?
Also, I’d like to mention that I’m only using Revolut for trading and I would like to keep my positions in case I won’t be able to use my account while I wait for a new residence card.
Thanks in advance for any help.
*** UPDATE ***
I contacted Revolut in chat and they accepted my temporary residence permit. The whole thing took a couple of hours because I had to explain to them my problem in great detail but they ended up sorting it out which is what matters. Thanks a lot!
