Our details


West Parliament Square

The consulate general does not operate a public counter and you are advised to contact us by email for any enquiry. Please note that the consulate general doesn’t deal with visa applications.



E-mail is by far the best way to contact us. The duty officers will read emails in real time during office hours and reply as appropriate as soon as they can. Click here to write to us.


  • 0131 285 6038 (Mon, Wed, Fri, 3pm-5pm)
  • In the evenings and daytime at weekends and on holidays, and exclusively for emergency issues relating to the consular protection of French nationals, whether living in Scotland or visiting, who require an immediate assistance falling in the remit of the consulate general, an emergency number is accessible at +44 (0)7702 252 555. You may leave a message on the answerphone but a text message, stating clearly your identity, will prove more effective. You will only be called back if your message meets the above criteria.
