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 :

You may also check the website of the Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs which provides similar information to the above.

In August 2022, there are no longer Covid checks to enter France territory. 
COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted in France. Providing proof of vaccination, recovery from COVID-19 or negative test results is no longer required.

To have more details and updates on the situation :

and you may also check your own country's foreign affairs website to find out about your country of origin's procedures. 

 

 

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.

 

Before August 2022 a vaccination proof was required to enter the French territory. A vaccination card written in English was accepted. 

In August 2022, COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted in France. Providing proof of vaccination, recovery from COVID-19 or negative test results is no longer required.

France Just For You warmly recommends to their travelers to still bring a copy or good quality picture of their vaccination proof, just in case. 

While vaccination proof is no longer required to enter France (August 2022), this is the list of vaccines authorized by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) or the World Health Organization (WHO):

You need to check with your own country’s regulations to re-enter after a trip to France. (you should check either on your country's foreign affairs website or on the ministry of health website).

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 are warmly recommended in public transportation and mandatory in hospitals.

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 !

During the epidemic, the rules for travel to and from France have depended on the country from which or to which you wished to travel, the reason for which you were travelling and your vaccination status.

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

Wherever possible we prefer to travel on our own as opposed to going on a tour package. With France - Just For You, they arranged for a vehicle and booked us into a couple of lovely B&B’s and a great Boutique Hotel in Paris and booked a couple of activities that we were interested in. Besides that, they put together a book for us with everything we …
