    Sorry... no time for further research (I'm signing off) but I wanted to point you in the good direction:

    Try "permission exceptionnelle". The rest will depend on the complete phrase.

    "Leave" is usually autorisation in French, e.g. "leave to appeal" = autorisation d'appel, at least in Canada -- google:

    "autorisation exceptionnelle" asile

    and I think you'll find that is the term: autorisation exceptionnelle de séjour.

    (nearly 11,000 results versus fewer than 500 for permission exceptionnelle, although it does seem to be used)
