I will be travelling through UK (Manchester) from Africa to Paris.
I will pass through border controls since i have to pick my lugages and check in again in a différent terminal but still at Manchester Airport. It is a landside transit
My flight to Paris is on the same day (7 hours later) I have a lebanese passeport and a 10 years french resident card (titre de séjour). It was issued in April 2010 (to April 2020) It is plastified, « pink/purple » color, has bull and 5 stars on it. It does not have a chip et is a little bit bigger than the « credit card size model » (mine is 10,5x7,5cm)
Having a common format resident card EEA allows me to transit via UK.
My question is this : Is the resident card that I have considered a common format resident card ? Even without a chip and not the credit card size ?
Thank you in advance
