Travelling from Paris: departing and connecting passengers

Passengers from Paris

Before travelling abroad from Paris, you must check with your airline company and the public institutions (embassies, consulates, etc.) if specific measures are required. In case of cancellation, modification or postponement of a trip, contact your airline or tour operator directly. 

Airlines will also inform you of any restrictions in the country of arrival. Passengers are refused boarding if there are restrictions in the country of destination. 

All the informations Paris Aéroport provides to date are only indicative.

Useful informations

Until further notice, the French State advises not to travel abroad (outside the European Union) due to travel restrictions and measures taken by some countries at often very short notice (interruption of air links, ban on entry into the country, compulsory quarantine, etc.).

If you have to travel, 
a sworn declaration stating that you are not showing symptoms of Covid-19 infection is required for all air travel, regardless of the destination. This document must be given to your airline company when you board the plane.

Paris Aéroport has also set up two Covid-19 testing centers at Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Paris-Orly airportsDeparting passengers must take an appointment online (doctolib.fr). Results will be guaranteed within 48 hrs maximum (RT-PCR test).

Covid-19: two screening centers on departure in Paris-CDG and Paris-Orly

Departure terminals

Some terminals at Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Paris-Orly airports are temporarily closed.

Airlines must consequently reorganise their operations. In the same way, these same airlines are today forced to adapt their flight schedules to the travel restrictions set by the States they operate in. 

We invite you, before your departure, to consult the flight schedules and to contact your airline company for information on the current status of your flight.

Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport
Only terminals 2A, 2E and 2F are open until further notice.

Paris-Orly airport
Only Orly1 and Orly3 are open until further notice.

Passengers connecting in Paris

Paris airports are open and welcome connecting passengers between flights. 

You must get tested before traveling as they will not be able to get tested during their transfer if a RT-PCR test is required by your final destination.

Integrated transfer (one single booking reference)

Your luggage will be transferred automatically by your airline from check-in until final destination.

Your are entitled to remain airside to transfer. Follow the yellow transfer signs indicating your next departure terminal. You must possess and be able to show all necessary travel documents for your entry for your final destination (including a possible RT-PCR test, if required by your final destination, as you will not be able to carry your test out during the transfer at Paris Aéroport).

Self-connecting (two booking reference numbers, booked with two separate tickets)

You must fulfil all entry conditions on the French territory and be able to present all relevant documents, in order to collect your luggage and check it in with your next airline.

If you do not meet all requirements to enter the French territory, you will have to remain airside, and contact as soon as possible both airlines to make sure your luggage are rushed onto your next flight (including a possible RT-PCR test, if required by your final destination, as you will not be able to carry your test out during your transfer at Paris Aéroport).

Travelling to Paris: arriving passengers

I am travelling from Europe

Useful informations

The borders inside the Schengen area are open to European citizens. 
However, due to sanitary measures, all flights coming from the Schengen area are controlled by the Border Police (PAF) on arrival.

At last, all persons wishing to travel to Corsica from 19 December to 8 February included must have taken a -72h test (RT-PCR) before departure

From Monday 18 January, people from European countries (Member States of the European Union as well as Andorra, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Monaco, Norway, San Marino, Switzerland and the Vatican) are allowed to enter into French territory without restrictions. They are also exempt from quarantine on arrival in France. 

Please note that a EU legal framework will be finalised soon to introduce some restrictions, in particularly testing obligations. In the same way, some restrictions can be applied in other cases. For good reason, some countries in the European area have decided not to follow the European Commission's recommendation to open their internal borders. 

United Kingdom:  Until further notice, all passengers over 11 years old travelling from the UK must show a negative RT-PCR test on boarding in addition to the usual sworn statement. Also, passengers will be required to provide a sworn undertaking that they will isolate themselves for 7 days once in France and then re-test RT-PCR for a second time at the end of the 7-day period.

I am travelling from abroad (outside the EU and Schengen area) 

From Monday 18 January 2021, all passengers over 11 years old, travelling from a foreign country outside the European Union, must show a negative RT-PCR test of -72h (except for connecting passengers whose final destination does not require a test) on boarding for France, as well as a sworn statement undertaking to remain in isolation for 7 days once in France, then to repeat a second RT-PCR test at the end of this period of seven days.

If you have an urgent journey or if the country of departure does not provide an RT-PCR test, a travel pass, delivered by the French embassy or the consulates general in the country on departure, will allow you to be tested on arrival in France. Passengers must then remain in isolation for 7 days in an establishment determined by the French authorities.

To travel to France, you will also need to complete and carry two documents with you on your journey:
- a certificate of international travel to metropolitan France to be presented to your airlines before boarding. 
- a declaration on honour that you do not have symptoms of Covid-19.

Without a -72h RT-PCR test, in order to prove that you are not carrying the virus, or without a laissez-passer, and the two documents above, it will therefore no longer be possible to leave for France.

I am travelling to & from Overseas France


Guadeloupe, Guyana*, Martinique, Mayotte*, New-Caledonia*, French Polynesia*, Reunion island, Saint-Martin, Saint-Barthelemy, Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon, Wallis and Futuna* 

From now on, only a negative RT-PCR test (and no longer antigenic), performed less than 72 hrs before the flight, will be required on boarding for all flights in the French Overseas Territories for all passengers over 11 years old. Passengers with a positive result will not be allowed to board.

In addition to the sworn statement of absence of symptoms at the Covid-19, passengers will also have to commit, through a derogatory travel certificate, to isolate themselves for 7 days and to redo a second RT-PCR test at the end of this seven-day period. 

* For French Guiana, Mayotte, New Caledonia, French Polynesia and Wallis and Futuna, the above measures do not apply as the local authorities have already taken specific measures. For all these destinations, a mandatory reason for travel must be justified.
For French Polynesia, you must also present the registration receipt you will find here as well as an Electronic Travel Authorization (ETA) for transit to Vancouver
