Five year card



Soon my work permit is coming for renewal and this time I will be having my fifth work permit. Am I eligible now to get a five year card ? On what basis the authorities decide to issue five year card? Is it based on commune? Do I need to request this while submitting my work permit application?

Thanks for sharing your experience..


varies from commune to commune and sometimes even person to person at the same commune.
I had one year cards for years and changed commune and got a 5 year straight away. A friend at the same original commune is still waiting, another got one year 2. We all had the same job etc.
