Re: En attente d’information Télédéclarant - what does this mean?

Hi Sue,

Yes, I am going to hang a on a while but it's impossible to tell whether the application is/has been looked at or if I'm being fobbed off for the moment as they are soooooo busy.

The first email I sent to ANTS 9th Feb to ask if the application was going through was answered with 'we will reply within 72 hours.' They didn't reply so 19th Feb using the same email I asked if they'd forgotten to reply. Not having had a reply to that email I've been checking the site daily to find yesterday the response dated 16 Feb 'En attente etc. So from that I presume that my emailed has been answered on the ANTS site and backdated to the 16th - if you get my drift!

Absolutely agree on both counts .. I have nothing more helpful to add at present than to repeat hang on in there for a bit and see what happens next.
I do think that the general consensus is that they are overloaded as per the vociferous complaints in French media.

Yabadabadoo so pleased as finally ANTS came marching through today so paid up and then immediately got my provisional CG. It's taken just over 9 weeks so anyone else waiting take heart as it will happen - eventually.

Good to hear that Mrs KG.

I've got to change my driving licence soon, but hanging on in the hope that one day they will have sorted the problems!

How much did they charge, if you don’t mind me asking?

I've been changing my driving licence since last September, and I still haven't got an actual licence.
I've got a copy of my old valid UK licence and their "attestation" but no actual licence.
There seems to be no end to the variety of dumb questions they choose to ask.
Such as -"Are you a resident in France?"
Answer- Please see carte de sejour copy which I sent you - please note it states "permanent resident"
It makes you wonder if the staff they are employing can actually read!

"How much did they charge, if you don’t mind me asking?"

That's the strange bit - there is no charge apparently.

At any time the urge to sing "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" is only a whim away.

Re: En attente d’information Télédéclarant - what does this mean?

We started our application to rematriculate our uk Saab in April, we had to then wait six weeks for our certificate of conformity. We are now still awaiting confirmation that all is ok. Our application constantly disappears off the ANTS site, we then email and get no response but it reappears. At what point, we wonder, should we abandon this and start a new application?

I don't think you can. If you've started one application, you can't start another for the same vehicle until the first is either completed or annulled. And if you can't see it, you can't annul it.
