Travellers coming from other countries are encouraged to have a negative PCR test before they arrive in France.

They will be informed of the possibilities for carrying out a test at the airport and in France.
Symptomatic travellers during border health checks should be subject to quarantine, regardless of their nationality.
Specific rules apply to the French Overseas Territories: all travellers aged over 11 years will have to produce a negative PCR test result, carried out less than 72 hours before boarding, in addition to the rules set out above.
You cannot travel to or from French Guiana, French Polynesia, Mayotte, New Caledonia or the Wallis and Futuna islands if you cannot prove compelling family or professional grounds.

Upon arrival in metropolitan France from one of these territories, you will be encouraged to submit to a PCR test or, failing that, to comply with a 7-day quarantine period.
