Closure of U.S. Consular Agency Nice
The U.S. Embassy to France and Monaco and the U.S. Consulate General in Marseille announce a consolidation of consular services in southern France in order to better serve the public and enhance security for customers and staff. Effective September 1, 2015, the U.S. Consular Agency in Nice will close. All routine and emergency consular services in the Marseille consular district* will be provided by the U.S. Consulate General in Marseille. The closure reflects the U.S. government’s policy of providing the highest quality consular service to U.S. citizens and foreign nationals in a location that offers a secure environment for all concerned.
As of September 1, 2015, all U.S. passport applications, reports of birth abroad applications, and notarial services must be scheduled at either the U.S. Consulate General in Marseille or the U.S. Embassy in Paris. For emergency services in the Marseille consular district, U.S. citizens are advised to contact the consular section at the U.S. Consulate General in Marseille. For emergency services in other regions of France, U.S. citizens are advised to contact the U.S. Embassy in Paris.
Please refer to the links provided below for detailed information about how to schedule an appointment for consular services and how to prepare for receiving your service.
Effective in 2014, American Presence Posts (APPs) in Rennes, Bordeaux, Toulouse and Lyon will no longer accept applications for U.S. passports and birth registrations, Social Security numbers or other federal benefits, or provide notarial services.
Passport, birth registration applications and notarial services for U.S. citizens in those consular districts can be scheduled at either the U.S. Embassy in Paris or the U.S. Consulate General in Marseille.
Please contact the Federal Benefits Unit at the U.S. Embassy in Paris for information on applications for Social Security numbers and other federal benefits.
The U.S. Mission to France will schedule periodic visits by consular officers to provide routine services to American citizens in the districts of APP Rennes, Bordeaux and Toulouse. We will publicize these visits to citizens actively listed in our Smart Travelers Enrollment Program (STEP), so please ensure that you are signed up in order to receive notices about such services as well as other messages from the U.S. Government. U.S. citizens can enroll online at: https://step.state.gov/step/
The Consular offices in Bordeaux, Lyon, Marseille, Rennes, Strasbourg and Toulouse cannot provide any visa services.
