Interested in visiting the Embassy?
|Each year, the Embassy of France welcomes about 1,000 visitors to explain its role as a diplomatic representation in the US. Tours are preferably given on Tuesday and Thursday mornings, in English or French, and last one hour. Tours are free. For more information, please read this pdf.|
Special notice about the White House tours
The White House website indicates that foreign citizens interested in taking a tour must contact their Embassy in order to make arrangements.
The U.S. Department of State, however, cannot currently grant access to foreign nationals as part of an Embassy-sponsored White House tour group.
We are therefore unable to process any requests at this time.
We will update this page if conditions change.
