There are currently no appointments at the French Consulate in New York before January. The consulate has promised to open new appointments each Monday at 9 am. We recommend you begin checking at 8:45 am. These appointments will go fast! You should also check the consulate for appointments daily as canceled appointments are put back in the system. If your permanent home address is in a jurisdiction outside of the New York consulate jurisdiction you may want to consider applying at a different consulate. Keep in mind other consulates may take up to 4 weeks to process your visa so you will have to plan accordingly. Securing an appointment at this time will require patience and persistence. Please contact OGS if you have any questions or concerns.
