Travel restrictions

Travelling abroad

As a result of the restrictive measures currently in force in France, international travel to any destination is only permitted in cases of compelling personal or professional necessity.

If you must travel during the curfew between 6pm and 6am, please bring your flight ticket and the exemption certificate  downloadable here.

Sanitary measures are established according to the host country. 
For country-specific information and recommendations, please visit the Travel Advice pages of the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs. Simply select a country from the list for detailed information.

Think about it! Register your trip on Ariane, an online service of the Public Service. You will be alerted in case of a crisis and receive information and safety instructions by e-mail or SMS.

Travelling in France

Since 3 April, a national lockdown has been imposed throughout the country, limiting travel between regions to business or urgent reasons.

If you have to travel during the curfew (between 7pm and 6am), do not forget to bring your plane ticket and the travel certificate downloadable here.

You can generate your derogation travel certificate in digital format, or fill in your certificate manually. 
To download the travel certificates, go to the Ministry of the Interior website.

Travelling to France

Any entry into France from outside the European Union is prohibited, unless there is a compelling reason.

Entry into France, including for the European Union, is conditional on the presentation of a negative PCR test. 

It is recommended to isolate yourself for seven days once you have arrived in France, and then to redo a second PCR test at the end of this seven-day period.

Health checks on entry to overseas territories are subject to different measures depending on the territory. For more information on the health restrictions of each community, please consult the website of the corresponding prefecture.
