When living in Sweden, French people are automatically subjected to Swedish law. However, they remain under the protection of France. The head of the Consular Section and its staff can advise them on different actions they want to accomplish and assist them in case of difficulties (serious accident or illness, assault or robbery, arrest, imprisonment etc.).
The consulate issues passports, national identity cards and other administrative documents. They perform census of young French poeple and organize the Defense and Citizenship Day. They are also in charge of elections.
The head of the consular section chairs the local board for scholarships, the consular committee for social action, and the consular committee for employment and vocational training. It must also ensure the safety of the French community.
In addition, the Consular Section is responsible for informing foreigners that want to travel to France and to issue visa.
