Being a US or Canadian or Australian citizen, traveling to France as a tourist, you only need a valid passport, no visa.

For other citizenships, please use our visa widget to get the most updated information.

Make sure that your passport's expiration date complies with the laws of your country and of France.

For most countries, your passport needs to be valid for at least 3 to 6 months beyond your last day in France.

At time of planning your trip, you should check the last update on your country's foreign services and travel website.

Rule is: as long as your drivers license is written in roman alphabet, it will be accepted by a car rental agency.
