COVID-19 - PLEASE READ
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we would apprecite your time in reading the below:
ENTRY INTO FRANCE:
Travellers arriving in France from the UK, European Area, Australia, Canada, Georgia, Japan, Montenegro, Morocco, New Zealand, Rwanda, South Korea, Thailand, Tunisia and Uruguay are no longer required to self-isolate, to demonstrate their travel is essential or to hold an international travel certificate.
Arrivals from countries other than those specified above will still need to complete an international travel certificate, which certifies that your journey is essential and confirms that you have not been suffering from a set of listed symptoms associated with Covid-19.
This travel certificate is available on the French Ministry of the Interior’s website. You should also produce any supporting paperwork to substantiate the essential nature of your travel. If you are entering France via any port or airport from any country from which you are required to present an international travel certificate, or have spent time in these countries in the last 30 days, you will be invited to provide a negative Covid19 RT-PCR test taken less than 72 hours before departure. Those unable to provide this test result will be subject to 14-day compulsory quarantine/self-isolation on arrival. Travellers will be offered the option to have a free RT-PCR test at the airport on arrival with quarantine being lifted for those whose results are negative. For travellers arriving from Bahrain, Qatar, Kuwait, UAE, Oman, Israel, Turkey, Algeria, India, Madagascar, South Africa, Brazil, Peru, Panama, Serbia and the USA, the RT-PCR test will be obligatory from 25th July for travellers unable to provide a negative test taken less than 72 hours before departure. Border checks may also be in place at points on France’s land borders with Italy, Spain, Belgium and Germany.
There is no quarantine requirement for arrivals from the UK, from the wider European Area (as defined above) and from Australia, Canada, Georgia, Japan, Montenegro, Morocco, New Zealand, Rwanda, Serbia, South Korea, Thailand, Tunisia and Uruguay. Arrivals from other countries will be subject to compulsory quarantine/self-isolation for 14 days on arrival in mainland France unless arriving with a negative RT-PCT test taken in the 72 hours before arrival. Exemptions to self-quarantine in France are set out in a Ministry of Interior press statement (in French) and its translation (in English).
Travellers from any country showing signs of a COVID-19 infection upon arrival in mainland France will have to carry out a mandatory 14-day quarantine at home or in a dedicated location indicated by the French authorities if home quarantine is not feasible.
