Welcome by the Consul General [fr]
Dear Internet users,
Fellow citizens, friends of France and Louisiana,
It is my pleasure to welcome you on the website of the Consulate General of France in New Orleans.
If you are a French citizen, living or passing through, this website will inform you of the services that we can provide you, to assist your move or stay in our district. This website will also serve as link to services of the consulate of France in Houston, in charge of traveling documents or civil status for example.
You will also find the coordinates of your elected officials to the Foreign French Assembly (AFE) and of our honorary consuls in Lafayette and Shreveport, in order to guarantee the best proximity of our action. As well, you will find the list of francophone and francophiles associations of Louisiana, who work with us to strengthen the French-Louisiana friendship.
Since January 1st, 2013, the Consulate General of France in New Orleans is also the European Union Local Chair, in liaison with the other consular posts of the E.U. In this capacity, we will inform you also about the European-related events and act as a contact point for the EU Delegation in Washington D.C.
If you are an American citizen or a foreigner, you will find on our website all the information regarding the entry requirements to France and visa issues. This section will direct you to the Consulate General of France in Houston (Texas) who is competent for this matter for residents of Louisiana.
And whatever your nationality, you will find on our website news about the consulate, numerous information about the French-Louisiana friendship, as well as information on the attractiveness of France for business, culture or tourism.
I look forward to meet you soon during one of the events we organize or participate to, and I wish you an excellent virtual tour.
Long live France, long live Louisiana !
Consul General of France
