Consular District

The Bordeaux consular district includes one region in southwestern France. The district contains France’s most famous prehistoric caves, many ancient forts and castles, exquisite churches, and most of France’s ultramodern military aerospace industry. The Basque Region, with its mystifying ancient language, is 2 hours south of Bordeaux toward the Spanish border. Other notable cities in the consular district are Bayonne, Pau, Limoges, La Rochelle, Angoulême and Poitiers.

APP Bordeaux does not issue U.S. Visas:  All visa questions and applications must be referred to the U.S. Citizen Services in Paris.
