Where to buy the tax stamp?
Since March 2, 2015, you can buy an electronic tax stamp and this service is simple, fast and secure.
It is still possible to obtain paper stamps to pay the amount of the passport:
· in a tobacco shop,
· in a cash,
· in a corporate tax department (SIE, formerly tax receipts).
· The free replacement of the passport is possible under certain conditions.
· (Article 953 of the General Tax Code)
A free replacement of the valid passport is possible if:
the holder has changed his civil status or if he wishes to mention a name of use, marriage or widowhood, the holder has changed address, the passport no longer includes leaflets available for visas, the administration made a mistake when preparing the passport.
The application must be filed with the town hall of the place of his home (inquire beforehand before moving). If exceptionally the town hall can not issue the passport, you must contact the prefecture or the sub-prefecture. In Paris, the request is to be deposited in a site of collection of identity cards and passports.
The request is made on the spot by means of a form that is also delivered on the spot.
The formalities are the same as for a renewal of passport, except the tax stamp which the applicant does not have to pay.
The validity of this passport is identical to the time remaining on the replaced passport.
