I am fairly certain I have got the right idea but I would love for someone who has been through this to confirm it.
I have a visa to stay in France for 5 months. This means that because my stay is not exceeding 6 months I have been given a "long sejour temporaire". It is type D with multiple entries to France allowed.
When applying for my visa the OFII form "Demande d'attestation" was not required and was not provided with my visa.
I originally thought I had to complete the OFII form and submit it to the French authorities but after wondering why the OFII form was never required for my visa (hence not stamped by my consulate) I had a read and it seems as thought for a visa less than 6 months you are not required to register with OFII.
It's just really hard to find that written anywhere "official" online other than on the French consulate for Vancover's site. I am Australian and I have looked everyone where on the Australian site but can't find anything about temporary visas!
I would appreciate any advice =]
