My "Récépissé de demande de carte de séjour" says this on it:

((a demande la délivrance d'un premier titre de sejour portant la mention passport talent ce récépissé n'est pas valable qu'accompagne du document N° xxxx justifiant de l'identite de son titulaire exercise d'une activite salaire))

Can I travel to Germany by train for 2 days and come back to France?

Also, it might be beneficiary to mention that I am a Muslim Egyptian girl and I am wearing a hijab.

  • The French text on the (receipt for request of Residence Permit): (She has requested the issuance of a first residence permit bearing the mentioned passport talent this receipt is not valid unless accompanied by the document N ° xxxx justifying the identity of its holder exercise of a wage activity))

I have a friend who travelled from France to Amsterdam by bus with her récépissé and she had no problems. My husband has also applied for visas (and then travelled abroad) using his récépissé in the past. I hope this reassures you.

    According to service-public.fr/particuliers/vosdroits/F15763, it depends on the exact type.
