French term or phrase: DEA
Same residence permit but on the first page where there are the instructions-where permit is valid, what one needs to do if one goes abroad, or moves to another canton, etc. Then there is where this was issued and after, Geneva, date, then DEA. I wonder if this is some kind of reference as it appears on many residence permits. Can someone confirm or explain please? Thank you.

After all it seems it was the Directorate of European affairs since even the German version used DEA as in discussion above. Thank you

neutral  Nikki Scott-Despaigne: I shld have posted my comment here. Makes sense, but as DEA is the EN term and the ST is in FR, I'm not sure this can work after all.

Peer comments on this reference comment (and responses from the reference poster)
neutral  Nikki Scott-Despaigne: Ah, looks more likely than my suggestion of "domaine des étrangers et de l'asile". It does read more as a reference to a department/Service of some kind. However, DEA supposes an English word order rather than the French DAE.//So I saw. We're not fin. yet
