FOREIGNERS WHOSE STATUS IS REGULARISED

Statistics Directorate    
French Equivalent: Etrangers dont le statut est régularisé

Definition:
Foreigners whose status is regularised are foreigners whose entry or stay has not been sanctioned by the receiving State or who have violated the terms of their admission but who are nevertheless allowed to regularise their status.

Although most persons regularising their status have already been present in the receiving country for some time, their regularisation may be taken to represent the time of their official admission as international migrants.
