This Consulate General is currently processing a very high number of applications for new passports and identity cards.

We strongly recommend that you start the renewal process early, as delays may be longer than usual.

Thank you for your understanding.

Personal visit to the Consulate General

Access to the counters is only possible by appointment via email.

Only those with an appointment may enter the building (no accompanying persons). Quebec’s government recommends wearing a mask in public places.

As our premises are very tight, we encourage visitors to wear a mask indoors. In case of high attendance, the consulate reserves the right to ask clients to wait outside.
