Traveling to france from south africa

Requirements for travel to paris


“To take to the next Council of Ministers an agreement to restrict flights from South Africa and Botswana, and also from other countries, but in principle these two. And we are also going to adopt the requirement for high-risk countries not only to be vaccinated, but also to have an antigen and PCR test”, the minister assured on TVE.

France has suspended Friday flights from Lesotho, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Namibia and Eswatini (former Swaziland) immediately and for at least 48 hours after the discovery of a new and worrying variant of the coronavirus.

“These measures seek to protect against the arrival of this virus,” said Health Minister Olivier Véran, who recalled that it is a new variant that spreads rapidly but that for the moment there are few cases.

For its part, the Dutch government has also decided this Friday to suspend all flights from southern African countries, although in this case, without detailing the duration of this suspension of air traffic.

From spain to france

Read on because here you will find everything you need to know if you can travel to France now, what measures are being followed and what interesting places you can include in your next European adventure.

As you can see, you will be able to travel to France right now and enjoy that vacation you are looking forward to. The next step is to start planning, so you’re probably wondering which places are the most interesting and what you can’t miss in each of them. At IATI we advise you to focus on the south of the country and make a wonderful route by car that passes through destinations such as the following:

What are the must-sees? The Place du Capitole, where the town hall and the Opera House are located, is a must. Other interesting sites are the Place Victor Hugo market, the Jacobins Convent, the Basilica of St. Saturnin, the Cathedral of St. Etienne, the Hotel d’Assezat or the Musée des Agustins. Even so, what we recommend is to get lost in charming streets such as Rue Henri de Gorsse, Rue de Blanchers or Rue Sant-Antonie du T. and, of course, walk along the Garonne River and contemplate its bridges.

It is possible to travel to France

At the multilateral level, France contributes 12 % (with $55.7 million between 2014 and 2016) to the credits of the global fund to fight AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria dedicated to South Africa ($464.8 million).

With a trade surplus of around €1 billion for France, South Africa constitutes a major partner. Although France’s market share is on a downward trend, it is still significant, at 2.3% of the market, and the country is South Africa’s 4th largest European supplier.

The bilateral relationship also benefits from the presence of more than 300 French companies, including 29 CAC40 companies, which cover almost all industrial and service sectors and fully respect the local rules imposed by the authorities on local presence (e.g. 65% in the transport sector) and positive discrimination (employment, training). In this respect, companies contribute actively to the industrialization of the country, which allows South Africa to progressively increase its level despite structural constraints that remain strong (starting with a weak education system).

Trip to France

The European country will force travelers from Brazil, Argentina, Chile and South Africa to remain in isolation for ten days, fearing the spread of variants of the coronavirus, and will tighten conditions for entering the country.

France will force travelers from Brazil, Argentina, Chile and South Africa to remain in isolation for ten days, for fear of the spread of variants of the coronavirus, and will tighten conditions for entering the country.

The Government announced this Saturday that the suspension of flights with Brazil, which has been in force since April 14, will be extended at least until next Friday 23, the time necessary to “allow the resumption of flights with additional security measures”.

To enter, it will be necessary to present before boarding a negative PCR of the 36 hours prior to the flight, instead of 72 hours, or a negative PCR of the previous 72 hours together with an antigen test of less than 24 hours to be done upon arrival in France.

There will now be a pre-boarding verification system to check that the traveler has a place adapted for ten days’ isolation, which can be controlled by the national police or the gendarmerie, who will impose fines in case of non-compliance with the regulations.
