The PARAFE* programme is a new service that allows you to cross the border more quickly and also independently.

Thanks to your passport and your fingerprint, you join a dedicated queue and save time on departure and arrival.
Register now – it’s free and immediate!

For the holders of a new French biometric passport, there is no more need of registration beforehand
For the holders of other passports, registration is free at Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport.

* (in French) stands for Automated Fast Track Crossing at External Borders. Consult the site of the Ministry
