  • sworn declaration, which you can download from the Interior Ministry’s website stating that
    • you have no symptoms of COVID-19 infection;
    • to your knowledge, you have not been in contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19 in the 14 days prior to your journey.

If you are not vaccinated: 

Please note that depending on the country you originate from (green, orange and red countries), requirements will be different.

For green countries:

  1. That you have been tested (PCR or antigen) with a negative result within the last:
  • 48 hours for the "activity health pass" for the access to major events
  • 72 hours for travelling health control

For orange countries:

  • You can only travel to France if you have pressing grounds for travel. The list of pressing grounds is set out in the certificate of international travel drawn up by the Ministry of the Interior.
  • Each traveller aged 12 and over must present a negative PCR test taken less than 72 hours before departure or a negative antigenic test taken less than 48 hours before departure. If you are arriving from the United Kingdom, the PCR or antigenic test must have been taken less than 24 hours before boarding.

For red countries:

  • You can only travel to France if you have pressing grounds for travel. The list of pressing grounds is set out in the certificate of international travel drawn up by the Ministry of the Interior.

    If you have previously contracted COVID-19, instead of a negative test result you may present a certificate of recovery dated more than 11 days and less than 6 months prior to the date of arrival. A certificate of recovery is a document issued to persons who have contracted COVID-19, upon presentation of a positive RT-PCR or antigenic test.
