Yes. But in your case, you want to come back again, and you don't want to risk being locked out.

In your shoes, I would want to apply for an exemption, before leaving, so that you will be allowed to come back. Rather than take the risk of not getting the exemption when you apply from France.

I have seen a few people complain that it can take months, even when married to an Australian PR or Citizen, with the initial applications being rejected.

Can you renew a French residency permit at the French Embassy during these COVID times?

I heard that the validity of French residence permits, were extended by 6 months recently, due to COVID travel restrictions. Have you checked with the French Embassy?

Yeah fair enough...
Not sure if possible to renew from here. I am not able to book an appointment through their embassy website (no time available for some reason)...
Yeah the 6 month rule applies to those with expiring residence permit till 15th of May mine will expire towards the end of June! unless you got more updated news on this matter...

It is definitely complex.

The section for France, on smartraveller says: Only EU and Schengen nationals may enter France. Other nationalities may not enter, but are permitted to transit under certain conditions.
Still current at:08 June 2020

Are you an EU or Schengen national?

@Raven, just saw your thread and yay for making it across to Australia! I was wondering for your visitor 600, did you include any of the info you put in the travel exemption form?

Onshore/offshore doesn’t matter in this regard to the processing centre. This is entirely separate from your visa. You apply for the exemption with Immi Home Affairs and the email comes from immi home affairs (Australian Immigration). The email I received says it came from “DoNotReplyGlobal” which was Australia immigration

An hour. I applied as a spouse, not de facto.
