The 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games will bring millions of U.S. citizen tourists to France this summer.  We strongly encourage you to take care of your U.S. passport and citizenship needs now to ensure your travel plans are not adversely affected.
Did you know that you can renew your U.S. passport at any time?  You don’t have to wait until just before it expires.  Many adults can avoid the hassle of coming to the Embassy or consulates and renew their passports by mail.  Check our website to see if you qualify.



The U.S. Embassy in Paris and the U.S. Consulate General in Marseille will be extremely limited in offering any type of routine services during the Games (from July 25 to August 11, 2024 and August 28 to September 8, 2024.)  Notarial services will not be available.

We strongly encourage you to schedule appointments NOW for notarial services.  Please refer to this webpage to schedule an appointment in Paris, Marseille or Strasbourg.
