Leaving on a trip soon? Before you go, please make sure to check the entry requirements in your destination country.
It is your responsibility to meet these entry requirements and to bring the correct documents with you. This also includes a negative Covid-19 test result, if your destination requires it.

Your comfort, well-being and health are at the heart of our concerns. That's why we are by your side to help you prepare for a safe trip.

BEFORE DEPARTURE

BEFORE DEPARTURE

CHECK TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS

More information can be found on the embassy website of your departure, transit and destination countries, the TravelDoc website, as well as on the France Diplomatie website.

Departing from France

Special travel documents may be required by some authorities, including those in the Schengen area. If so, you must present all mandatory travel documents before boarding and upon arrival at your destination.

In addition, some destinations may require quarantine upon arrival, a recent negative Covid-19 test result (PCR test) or other health certificates.

You will not be allowed to board if you do not meet the entry requirements in your destination country, or if you have not completed the necessary formalities before your trip.

Please make sure to verify the entry and stay requirements in your destination and transit countries with the relevant authorities.

Arriving to France

Since August 1st, new entry requirements for France will take effect. 

  • For passengers arriving from the United States, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates and Panama: a negative Covid-19 test result (PCR test) taken less than 72 hours before the flight is mandatory upon boarding.

COVID-19 TEST: PARTNERSHIPS WITH SYNLAB AND BIOGROUP

In order to help you carry out a Covid-19 detection test (RT-PCR), Air France has set up partnerships with the Synlab and BioGroup laboratories.

You can find below the list of laboratories carrying out PCR-Covid tests:

We advise you to make an appointment in advance (test to be carried out within 72 hours before your departure, results within 48 hours).

Since 26 July, COVID-19 screening in France is covered by health insurance without a prescription, regardless of your destination.

You can also visit the Doctolib website to make appointments with other laboratories performing Covid-19 PCR tests.

The list of laboratories is provided for information only. Air France declines all responsibility for the conditions and consequences of carrying out the tests.

If you present symptoms related to Covid-19 (cough, fever, headache, breathing difficulties...), you should postpone your trip and observe the health recommendations of your country of departure.
