Starting June 9, 2021, France will allow entry for residents of the United States, EU and Schengen states.

Fully vaccinated travelers coming from USA can enter with proof of vaccination. France has not yet officially announced what acceptable proof of vaccination will be for travelers vaccinated in the United States, but a tweet from the French Consulate General in Washington said the CDC card would be acceptable. Travelers who are not fully vaccinated require a negative PCR or antigen test performed within the 72 hours before entering France. This includes land and sea travelers as well as air travelers. There is no quarantine requirement.

Children: Travelers under age 11 are treated as vaccinated regardless of their vaccination status and do not need to have a COVID test. Travelers ages 11 through 17 are treated as vaccinated if they are accompanied by a fully vaccinated parent or guardian. Travelers in this age group traveling independently must meet the rules applicable to adult travelers. Accepted Vaccines: Currently only the Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca, and Johnson & Johnson vaccines are accepted for entry into France.  Travelers must also be fully vaccinated, which occurs two weeks after the second dose of Pfizer, Moderna, or AstraZeneca, and four weeks after the single dose of Johnson & Johnson.

All travelers, except fully vaccinated travelers arriving from green countries (including the United States), must present results of a negative COVID test.

Starting on August 2, 2021, a valid health pass will be required to board planes, long-distance trains and buses. It will also be required to access cafés, restaurants, shopping malls, amusement parks, hospitals, retirement homes, and clinics.

Digital version/app of Health Pass is called TousAntiCovid.

France’s health pass refers to one of following three documents:

Ø Proof of vaccination (The French Government considers full vaccination is two weeks past a second Pfizer, Moderna, or AstraZeneca injection -or- four weeks past a single Johnson & Johnson injection.)

Ø A negative test less than 48 hours old

Ø Proof of recovery (a positive test that’s more than 15 days old, but fewer than 6 months).

Visitors vaccinated outside of the EU are not able to upload their documentation into the Health Pass app at this time. Visitors should therefore carry paper proof of their status.

For Americans this would be their CDC-issued vaccine card.

Please be prepared to show this documentation as a condition of entry to some establishments. Consider packing paper copies and/or a digital copy on your phone as a backup. Vaccinated travellers should not anticipate any issues.

Travelers who have not been vaccinated, but are able to do so may wish to complete their vaccination prior to their trip. It will ease travel in France. If you are unvaccinated and entering on a negative test, please be aware that you may be required to get tested regularly in France to ensure continued access to establishments and transportation.
