The risk of propagation of variant strains of Covid-19 is important. Therefore any entry into France from a country outside the European Union is prohibited, except for compelling reasons.
Entry into France from a European Union country is subject to the presentation of a negative PCR test less than 72 hours old or proof of vaccination.
For travelers entering France from outside the European Union, tourist flows will be reopened from 9 June depending on the health situation in these countries.
Tourists flows will be able to resume with much more relaxed measures if you are coming from a so-called “green” country. This is where the virus is not actively circulating and where there are no worrying variants.
On the other hand, if you are coming from an “orange” country, the conditions of entry into France will be more restrictive, particularly for unvaccinated travelers. These countries are those where the virus is actively circulating but in controlled proportions.
Finally, drastic measures will be taken for countries where the situation is not under control and where the virus and variants are actively circulating. These countries are classified as “red countries”. Strictly controlled isolation and quarantine measures are put in place.
These “red countries” are allowed to travel if there is a compelling personal, health or business reason. They must observe a mandatory 10-day quarantine upon arrival in France. Failure to comply with this requirement will result in a fine of €1,000.
Do not hesitate to check the latest rules in force in your respective countries before travelling.
