We maintain and develop relations between the UK and France. The British Consulate in Marseille provides services to British nationals living in and visiting the South East of France.

You can access UK government services while in France.

Urgent assistance

If you’re in France and you need urgent help (for example, you’ve been attacked, arrested or someone has died), call +33 (0)1 44 51 31 00. If you’re in the UK and worried about a British national in France, call 020 7008 1500.

Get an emergency travel document

You can apply for an emergency travel document if you’re abroad and your passport has been lost or stolen, damaged or expired, and you can’t get a new or replacement passport in time to travel.

If you are due to travel in the next 24 hours, contact us as soon as possible.

If you are travelling in the next week and your passport is not available, you may be able to apply for an ETD. You can apply online and then go to your nearest consulate and normally obtain an emergency travel document on the same day. You must bring your travel details for all applications plus proof of your address in France if the ETD is for a round trip. You should arrive at the consulate at least an hour before the scheduled closing time.

Apply online for an emergency travel document if you:

  • are over 16 years old and
  • are a British citizen and
  • have previously owned a British passport

Contact us to apply for an emergency travel document if you are:

  • over 16 years old but have not owned a British passport before or
  • not a British citizen or
  • applying for a child under 16 years old

Once you have contacted us, you will be advised to make an appointment to apply for an emergency travel document at the British Consulate Marseille.
