Apply Now to Get Ahead of the Surge and Avoid Delays

In 2007, the Department of State experienced an unprecedented surge in passport applications, issuing over 18 million passports as a result of the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI).  Nearly ten years later, those passports are beginning to expire, and we have been experiencing increased demand for passport renewals.  This increase in demand may lead to longer processing times, so we encourage you to apply for your passport well in advance of your travel plans.

As of October 1, 2017 the U.S. Consulate General in Marseille will cease all Social Security services. All applications and inquiries have to be directed to the Federal Benefits Unit at the U.S. Embassy in Paris. Please refer to this page for more information.
