🛡️ Travel safety for France

Do not travel

France has lifted entry restrictions for countries assessed to be low COVID-19 risk, including Australia. If you’re travelling from a country with a high COVID-19 risk, you may be denied entry to France. If you're travelling from outside the EU-Schengen area or the UK, a voluntary 14-day quarantine period applies. It's now mandatory to wear a facemask in enclosed public spaces. These measures may change at short notice. Contact your airline or local authorities for the latest update. We advise: Do not travel to France.
