France is the latest European destination to announce new travel restrictions on U.S. travelers.
As with Spain and Italy, France welcomes vaccinated visitors, but will restrict unvaccinated travelers to those who have an essential reason for coming to France.
Effective September 12, (including departures from the US on September 11), fully vaccinated travelers are required to provide proof of a full vaccination and a declaration form. Children under 12 years of age are exempt.
Also on September 12, (including departures from the US on September 11) non-vaccinated travelers will only be allowed to enter if their reasons for travel meet the essential travel categories set forth by France. Non-vaccinated travelers who meet the essential travel exceptions must provide one of the following documents:
A negative NAAT test result taken within 72 hours of departure
A negative antigen test result taken within 48 hours of departure
Subject to testing upon arrival
Self-quarantine for seven (7) days upon arrival into France
Undergo NAAT testing at the end of the self-quarantine period
