U.S. Consulate Rennes


U.S. Ambassador to France Felix Rohatyn and Mayor Edmond Hervé inaugurated the American Presence Post (APP) in Rennes in January 2000.

APP Rennes was established to build greater understanding of the United States in western France and to expand the strong ties of friendship between the two nations.

Its missions are:

  • to support American business;
  • to promote greater exchanges between the United States and the regions of western France;
  • to provide information on the United States and American policy to American and French citizens.

Rennes’ central location provides convenient access to the area covered by the APP, which includes Lower Normandy, Brittany, and Pays de la Loire.

The office in Rennes cannot provide visas to French citizens. All questions related to visas to the United States should be referred to the American Embassy Visa Services in Paris.

The office is closed on French and American holidays.
