I am a British guy who is applying for a long stay visa in France. I'm filling out my profile on the TLS site and it requires a 'British Residence Permit No.' and as as British citizen, how am I supposed to get this? WHY am I supposed to get this? I've never had to provide this in my life smh

If you are British by birth you won't have a Residence Permit; they are for immigrants. If it's stopping you completing the application you'll need to find a phone or email contact to ask for help.

Thanks for the clarification. Exactly what I thought tbh - I have no idea why I'm being asked for it!

I got my visa in the end. What you need to do is select 'United Kingdom' as the residence, not 'British national' (even if you were born here, raised here and describe yourself as a bloody British national). If you select 'British national', you'll have to put a British residence permit number which you don't have if you're British by birth. However, I selected that one not knowing about the UK option, and a friend told me I had to put my passport number as my permit number. Either way, I still got my visa! Good luck, just persist and keep going. There's this handy document that really helped clarify things for me https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...IlvTpsDh3/edit
