Need for the Document[edit]

Territory of the French Southern and Antarctic Lands is a French overseas territory. The territory has no permanent civilian population. Those residents consist of visiting military personnel, officials, scientific researchers and support staff. Each district is headed by a district chief, who has powers similar to those of a French mayor (including recording births and deaths and being an officer of judicial police). Because there is no permanent population, there is no elected assembly, nor does the territory send representatives to the national parliament.

French passports are identity documents issued to French citizens for international travel and a proof of French citizenship. French southern territory residents are issued with French passports.
