All passengers travelling to France must complete a ‘sworn statement’ form self-certifying they are not suffering from symptoms associated with coronavirus and have not been in contact with confirmed cases in the preceding fortnight. The form for passengers aged 12 and over can be found on the French government’s website. There is a separate form for passengers aged under 12.

 

For travellers vaccinated within the meaning of European regulations, no more tests will be required on departure. The proof of a complete vaccination schedule is sufficient to arrive in France, regardless of the country of origin.

 

•  Vaccine certificates will not be accepted for travel if more than 9 months (270 days) have passed since the 2nd vaccination dose was received (or single dose in the case of Janssen Vaccine).

•  Vaccine certificates based on booster/additional doses are not time limited.

 

For unvaccinated travellers, the obligation to present a negative test to travel to France remains, but the measures on arrival (test, isolation) are lifted when people come from countries on the "green" list.

 

When unvaccinated travellers come from a country on the "orange" list, they must continue to present a compelling reason justifying the need for them to go to mainland France and may still be subject to a random test on arrival. Travellers who test positive will have to isolate themselves, in accordance with the recommendations of the Health Insurance.
