Welcoming remarks from the Consul General

Dear compatriots,

Dear visitors,

Welcome to the Consulate General of France in Washington.

The aim of this website is to assist you as efficiently as possible in your query, whether it concerns, if you are French, a new passport or national identity card application or renewal, a transcription of a civil status document, an application for a school grant, a legalization of signature, information on local legislation and living conditions or on the French-language educational network.

You will also find, if you are not a French national, useful information for a visa application, as well as general information about France,studies in France or investment opportunities in France.

This website also aims to inform you about the French presence in the consular district of Washington, which covers Washington DC and the five States of Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia, where the Consulate General can count on the efficient relay of our three honorary consuls and on a very dynamic associative, educational and cultural network.

With 16,000 registered nationals, the French community in the consular district, represented by all its elected representatives (Consular Counselors, Counselors to the Assembly of the French nationals abroad, Deputy of the French nationals in North America, Senators representing the French nationals established outside France), is a major asset for the visibility and influence of our country. I invite all French nationals who are established in the consular district of Washington, in particular the newcomers, to register at the Consulate general, which can now be done easily online. This facilitates many administrative procedures, in particular the registration on the consular list of electors, and allows to establish contact rapidly in case of emergency.

Together with the whole team, we wish you a good visit and remain at your disposal to best meet your expectations.
