Following the attacks in Paris on Friday 13 November, the French government has introduced exceptional measures with regard to the circulation of traffic and civil protection.

Entering France has not changed in any way, the conditions remain the usual Schengen space conditions. If you come from the EU or a Schengen member country then your passport or ID card are all you need.If you are a visitor from outside the Schengen zone then you should always travel with your passport, your visa if required and other travel documents such as hotel reservation, return ticket and travel insurance.

No additional formalities are required, but you may be asked to present these documents on arrival in France even if you entered the Schengen zone via another country.

It is recommended that you keep your travel documents on you in case of need given the tightening of security measures.


Airports in Paris are operating normally, including all domestic and international flights. Pre-boarding checks have been tightened so please allow for additional delays.


The SNCF is operating a normal service to destinations around France and abroad. Please allow extra time for additional checks for international services.
