Serbs in southern France say they lack a consulate

November 2, 2021

Around 40,000 Serbs live in the French city of Lyon and the southern part of the country. For more than a decade, they have not been able to use the Serbian consulate services. By the decision of the government, the consulate was closed 12 years ago and for a large number of Serbian citizens the situation has changed. From that time on, in order to get any official paper, they have to go to Paris, which is 600 kilometers away from Lyon, and as they say, they cannot finish all administrative procedures on the same day. More details in the media report of TV Nova S correspondent Katarina Radović, who was in France as a participant of the Pulse of Europe project.
