France and Paris travel information

Entering the Country

The borders are not closed, but systematic checks at entry points to the French territory (road, rail, port and airport crossing points) will take place.

The condition of entering the country have not changed. The documents that must be presented during border controls are the same as those usually required for nationals of your country. However, delays are to be expected in airports and stations served by international services (Thalys, Eurostar, etc.).

Citizens of European Union Member States need a valid identity document (ID card or passport). Generally, the documents required to enter France are the same as usual.

The visas issued prior to the establishment of border controls remain valid to enter France.


Airports in Paris are operating normally, including all domestic and international flights. Pre-boarding checks have been tightened so please allow for additional delays.


The SNCF is operating a normal service to destinations around France and abroad. Please allow extra time for additional checks for international services. 

Métro and bus services in Paris

The city’s métro system, buses, trams and RER rail network are operating normally and stations are open.
