Airport Transit Visa
Hi all,
I am a Cuban, doing a PhD in Greece. My residence Card Expired less than a month ago so I have to go to Cuba and pick a Student Visa from the Greek embassy there. I called the French Embassy to know if in that case I would need an Airport Transit Visa to go to Cuba doing a scale in Paris. Sadly, The person who answered the phone after you select your category in the automatic answering machine, he told me they speak only French or Greek. That it very rude and he is a person not willing to help at all because someone working in an embassy should at least have a minimum knowledge of English. I don’t know why they decide to work in embassies if they do not want to help.

French Consulate to Greece around late 1800's
Hello, I am working on my family tree and wanted to see if you have any information regarding my Great Grandfather, Nicholas A. Brest, who, I understand was the French Consulate to Greece in the late 1800's.
Thank you for your help.
