France is represented by a consular section in Kuala Lumpur headed by the Consul and three Honorary Consulates, one in Penang, one in Kota Kinabalu and one in Kuching.
The Consul acts as Registrar for French Nationals living in Malaysia. He issues them with identity cards and passports, registers their births, deaths and marriages, enters them on the electoral rolls and organizes polling stations for major National elections, draws up notarial acts and ensures the protection of their rights vis-à-vis the Malaysian authorities.
It registers teenagers of French nationality living in Malaysia who reach the age of 16 and thus may be liable for French national service. In some circumstances, it also gives assistance to French nationals (scholarships, limited and temporary financial help).
The consular section is opened Monday to Friday, from 9:00 am to 12:30.
