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.
To complete security upgrades to the building, the U.S. Consulate General in Marseille will suspend in-person consular services until further notice. Please keep monitoring the website for updates. U.S. citizens requiring in-person consular services during this time frame, including minor children’s passport applications, first adult passport applications and notarial services, are asked to make an appointment at the U.S. Embassy in Paris. We apologize for the inconvenience. Read more here.
Routine by mail passport renewals will continue during closure. By-mail passport processing times are 2-3 weeks.
