Hepatitis B and residence permit in France

I have chronic hepatitis B and been using Viread and Zeffix. ALT has been normal, HBV DNA has been negative and HBeAg has been positive recently. Now I am post-doctoral researcher in Paris and applied to temporary residence permit in Paris for 1-year without work permit. I have been working in an institution in my country and I can benefit from our social security system through the consulate. Namely, I do not need social security in France. I would like to learn whether my hepatitis B create a problem for the residence permit or not? Merci beaucoup.

Entecavir is in a similar class as Lamivudine but is folds more powerful and has a much much better resistance profile.  Can't quote any specific study on this combo but if you understand how things work, this is it.

After 2.5 year of Zeffix use, I had positive Anti-HBe, but about 6 monts later it relapsed. Again, I used Zeffix and about 1 year later, resistant mutations appeared and HBV DNA was very high. Then I used Zeffix and Hepsera, they decreased HBV DNA but it was still positive. Then I have switched to Viread and Zeffix and HBV DNA has been negative in a few months. My doctor usually suggests a change if the previous options are not successful, but I will mention from this combination after I return to my country. Is there a scientific study about the combination of Viread and Baraclude? Thank you.

Well firstly, if you are on combo treatment, you should really switch Zeffix to Entecavir.

And I not familiar with anything on France.  Maybe others could answer this part.
