The Embassy of France in Washington has outsourced the collection of visa applications to VFS GLOBAL since 2018.

On behalf of the French Authorities, VFS GLOBAL accepts visa applications from individuals residing in the United States by appointment only.

There are 9 visas application centers (VAC) in the US : Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, San Francisco, Washington.

Applicants are now able to apply for visas at the VFS center of their choice throughout the US.

As a result of this outsourcing, only the visas office in Washington DC is operational to process the applications collected by VFS GLOBAL; the Visa Departments of the other french consulates in the US are closed permanently.

If you want to apply for a visa or get more information, please visit the official portal France Visas.

If you need assistance, VFS GLOBAL operates a call center available at 212-784-6157 or 347-252-3055.

If your situation requires you to contact the visa Office at the French Embassy, we ask that you write to us via email at visas@consulfrance-washington.org.

Please do not call the French Embassy or your local consulate.
