New REQUIREMENTS for travel to FRANCE ⚠️ NEW

All foreign nationals wishing to travel to France must be able to present at the border the regulatory supporting documents relating to the purpose of the stay, means of subsistence and accommodation conditions.

As a general rule, unless exempted, a visa is required. To get information, prepare and submit your visa application or to follow up your visa application, connect to France-visas, the official visa website for France.

Thanks to its wizard, France-visas allows you to determine, depending on your situation, whether you need a visa and what type of visa you need. It will also indicate the supporting documents to be attached to the application and the applicable fee.

Once you have completed the online application, all you have to do is submit the documents to your visa center. France-visas will give you all the information you need to know who to contact and how to submit the application.

Family members of a citizen of EU Member States, EEA or Switzerland who wish to apply for a “family member of a citizen of the Union” residence card must contact the competent French prefecture to submit the residence card application within three months of their entry into French territory.

REQUIREMENTS FOR TRAVEL TO FRANCE / EUROPE 2019

On March 14, 2022, the presentation of the vaccination passport in those places where it was required (leisure and cultural centers, commercial catering, trade fairs and professional shows, etc.) ceased to be mandatory. Similarly, the health passport ceased to be in force on August 1, 2022.

Since the beginning of the crisis, the health control system has made it possible to preserve our health system and to delay the arrival on French territory of variants with worrying characteristics. This system ceased to be in force on August 1, 2022.

However, in the event of the emergence of a dangerous variant, the entry into French territory of travelers from countries considered to be at risk could again be subject to the presentation of a negative virological test.

For information on health regulations concerning entry into the territory of other countries, please consult the Travel Advice section of the website of the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs.
