Passengers travelling to France


Entry requirements for fully vaccinated* individuals.

 

There is no longer a requirement for fully vaccinated individuals to provide evidence of a negative Covid-19 test to enter France.

 

Passengers have to 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.

 

Entry requirements for non-fully vaccinated individuals.

 

Any passenger aged 12 or over entering France who hasn't undergone the full vaccination process* need to present printed evidence of a negative result from a privately undertaken (not NHS) COVID-19 PCR test or Antigen test taken up to 72 hours prior to their departure. Failure to comply will likely result in you being denied entry into France. Passengers arriving from the UK must have taken the PCR or Antigen test within 24 hours of departure.


Passengers from non-EU countries must self-isolate for seven days once arrived in France, then take a second virological screening test (RT- PCR) at the end of the seven day period. This period of self-isolation and re-test is also recommended for passengers from the EU.


Passengers also have to 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.


A COVID-19 Travel Certificate must also be completed by all passengers from non-EU countries stating their reason for travel.

 

 

* Fully vaccinated individuals must have had their final vaccine injection at least 7 days prior to departure where the vaccine was either Pfizer, Moderna or AstraZeneca (Vaxevria and Covishield). For the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, the single injection must have taken place at least 4 weeks prior to travel. Individuals who previously tested positive for Covid-19 and have also had their first injection of the Pfizer, Moderna or Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine at least 7 days prior to travel are also designated as fully vaccinated.
