We are doing our utmost to keep updated on the current situation.

It changes rapidly, and depends on your country and region of origin. For this reason, please keep posted from your end with your homeland authorities.

This is the most reliable information source about traveling in France during Covid. The information comes directly from the French government:
https://www.gouvernement.fr/en/coronavirus-covid-19

For travelers vaccinated within the meaning of European regulations, proof of a complete vaccination schedule becomes sufficient to arrive in France, regardless of the country of origin.

The French "Health Pass" is suspended starting March 14th, 2022. Travelers and French people no longer need to show a proof of vaccination to enter public places, restaurants, etc. It is just required to enter a hospital.

TousAntiCovid app is no longer required.

 

Vaccination proof is only required to enter the French territory. 

A vaccination card written in English is accepted. 

Only vaccines authorized by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) or the World Health Organization (WHO) will be accepted, i.e., Pfizer (Comirnaty), Moderna, AstraZeneca (Vaxzevria), Novavax and Johnson & Johnson (Janssen). See here the full list of authorized covid 19 vaccines:

The vaccination schedule is considered complete 28 days after the administration of a dose.

Travelling back to a « green » country is not subject to any restrictions on the French side. You need to check with your own country’s regulations to re-enter after a trip to France.

Some countries require their citizens to get a covid test before traveling back home.

 

Behave Cautiously, like at home

  • Social distancing
  • Frequent hand washing
  • Respiratory etiquette (when sneezing, coughing, etc.)

Masks

  • Masks are not mandatory in most public places: inside and outside. 
  • They may still be required in public transportation and other specific places which are not yet clearly listed.

If you have a cough or a temperature, stay at your accommodation, avoid contact with others and if necessary, call a doctor. You should take a test as quickly as possible in a pharmacy.

If you have difficulty breathing, call 112.

You can perform an antigenic test in most pharmacies in France without appointment. You can also buy self-tests in pharmacies.

If you need a PCR test, you can get an appointment on this website: https://www.doctolib.fr/ which is in French only, but the France Just For You team or your hosts will be happy to help.

You will get the results online within 24hrs.

It costs about 49€ for a PCR and 29€ for an antigenic test.

 

You may check with your usual travel insurer as most travel insurance now has a covid extra coverage.  If you do not have a travel insurance yet, you may check this website to compare rates and get covid coverage information:

There are no restrictions on travelling inside France...and it's less crowded as usual !

The rules for travel to and from France depend on the country from which or to which you wish to travel, the reason for which you are travelling and your vaccination status.

Full information is available in English on the website of the Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs.

Our Travelers’ Reviews

Don
We heard about Emilie from a friend who used her travel services twice. They spoke so highly of her we figured we had to visit France just to meet her. We traveled to the Loire Valley with another couple and she interviewed us separately to understand what we wanted to see and do and what we didn’t want to do. As a result, she designed a perfect …

It was the best tour ever! Laura did an amazing job to deliver painless and excellent planning and arrangements. Everything promised was delivered and included much more than would normally be seen without ‘INSIDR’ tips. It is obvious that Emilie and Laura have put a lot of thought and effort into the tours they offer. We definitely recommend …
Carol & Don
For our journey in the Loire Valley, we could not have hoped for more gracious, firendly and hospitable hosts. They made us feel like long time friends.
