French translation:La Direction du séjour et des frontières
Explanation:
Am assuming this refers to the government office that handles visas for visitors, students etc. (Jordan has such an office by this exact name, perhaps that's what your text is about).

In France, under the Direction de l'immigration (Directorate of Immigration), there is a "sous-direction du séjour et du travail": https://www.immigration.interieur.gouv.fr/La-Direction-gener...
That's where long-term visitors get residence permits (cartes/titres de séjour). In other words, in the immigration context, residence = séjour.

Hence, Direction du séjour. And then of course also "des frontières" since that's the rest of your text.
