The French government has fingerprinted U.S. journalists who will travel with President Obama to France for the G-8 summit next week.
"There are no exceptions to biometrics fingerprinting for regular visa applicants," Mr. Vassy said. "It is also my understanding that French journalists coming to the U.S. go through a similar process, that includes also fingerprinting, both for the visa application and at the entry port."
Luis Vassy, an embassy spokesman, said his government implemented the new requirement in January.
