France Updates Travel Guidance and Green List

March 19, 2021

As of March 18, the French government has updated its travel guidance and public health measures for foreign national arrivals.

Travelers comings from the “European space” — EU Member States, Andorra, the Holy See, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Monaco, Norway, San Marino, and Switzerland — may enter France with the following provisions:

  • A sworn declaration stating that the traveler has no signs of COVID-19 and they’ve not been in contact with anyone confirmed to have COVID-19 within the last 14 days.
  • Travelers 11 years or older, agree to a virological RT-PCR test upon arrival and provide negative RT-PCR test results taken within 72 hours before departure.

Travelers comings from outside the European space may enter France only if their journey meets one of the exception criteria as listed on the exempted international travel certificate and if they have pressing grounds for travel.

The requirement for pressing grounds does not apply to travelers coming from Australia, Israel, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, and the United Kingdom. Their trip must, however, meet one of the exception criteria as listed on the exempted travel certificate and they will be subject to the health control measures below (RT-PCR tests, sworn statement and self-isolation).
All travelers from outside of the European space must comply with the following requirements:
  • A sworn declaration stating that the traveler has no signs of COVID-19 and they’ve not been in contact with anyone confirmed to have COVID-19 within the last 14 days.
  • Travelers 11 years or older, agree to a virological RT-PCR test upon arrival and provide negative RT-PCR test results taken within 72 hours before departure.
  • Agree to self-isolate for 7 days upon arrival in France and, if 11 years or older, submit to a virological RT-PCR test at the end of the isolation period.

There are no restrictions on travel from France to other countries the European space to Australia, Israel, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, or the United Kingdom, but travel is strongly discouraged.

For travel outside of the European space and these select countries, travelers must have pressing grounds for travel, or be returning to their country of origin or residence.
