We all hope that we’ll never have to use the services of our country’s embassy when traveling abroad. But, well, since merde happens (brush up on French cuss words to use in the event you lose your passport), then knowing where to find the U.S. Embassies and Consulates in France could be helpful.
Remember that if you do lose your passport, you must visit an embassy (not a consulate). For more details on what to do in the event of a lost or stolen passport (or any other problem you have) check out the U.S. Embassy in France web site. Embassies and consulates are closed on both U.S. holidays and French holidays.
Please note that for all phone numbers below, if calling from outside France, the initial “0” should be dropped and replaced with +33. See U.S. Embassy information below for an example.
