TRAVEL TO FRANCE
Some Congress participants may require a visa to visit France. We will be pleased to send an invitation letter that will help you in your visa procedures.
This request can be made during the online registration process.
To date, please find below the information in regards to the health situation to enter in France :
FOR GREEN LISTED COUNTRIES :
- For travelers vaccinated within the meaning of European regulations, no more tests is required on departure. Proof of a complete vaccination schedule (Pfizer, AstraZeneca, Moderna and Janssen) becomes sufficient to arrive in France, regardless of the country of origin, as was the case before the distribution of the Omicron variant..
- For unvaccinated travellers, the obligation to present a negative test to travel to France remains, but the measures on arrival (test, isolation) are lifted when they come from countries on the "green" list, characterized by a moderate circulation of the virus.
- When unvaccinated travelers come from a country on the "orange" list, they must continue to present a compelling reason justifying the need for them to come to mainland France and may still be subject to a random test on arrival. Travelers who test positive will have to isolate themselves, in accordance with the recommendations of the Health Insurance.
In the event of an emergency characterized by the appearance of a variant likely to present a risk of increased transmissibility or immune escape, the "emergency brake" mechanism will be activated and the country will then be placed on the "red" list, implying, as is the case today, the obligation to present a compelling reason for travelling, the obligation to present a negative test on departure - including for vaccinated travelers in the event of a variant presenting the characteristic of an escape immune-, and the obligation to undergo a test on arrival conditioning the placement in quarantine decided by the prefects and controlled by the police.
Such classification will be temporary and reviewed regularly to ensure the proportionality of the travel restriction measures. Currently, no country is classified in the “red” list.
We invite you to consult the official website of the Ministry of the Interior for the list of the countries and the latest information : CLICK HERE.
