The Consulate General is headed by a Consul General who is responsible for all operations in Marseille.
The Consul General is assisted by a deputy, who runs consular and administrative services on day-to-day basis. The Consulate General and the Consular Agency together represent two United States Government agencies: the Department of State and the Navy’s Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS). The U.S. Navy’s Sixth Fleet liaison officer with the French Mediterranean Navy, and his staff assistant in nearby Toulon (where the French navy’s Mediterranean fleet is anchored) work closely with the Consulate General.
The U.S. Consulate General in Marseille will suspend in-person consular services from May through July 2019 to complete security upgrades to the building. U.S. citizens requiring in-person consular services during this time frame, including passport applications and notarial services, are asked to make an appointment at the U.S. Embassy in Paris. Post anticipates resuming normal consular operations in August 2019. We apologize for the inconvenience. Read more here.
