Entering and leaving France
Please respect the current rules within France: www.gouvernement.fr/en/coronavirus-covid-19.
What are the rules for entering France?
France is using a traffic-light system to indicate the health situation of each country; currently, all countries are either on the "green" or "amber" list, each with different regulations. More information: www.interieur.gouv.fr/covid-19-deplacements-internationaux (French only).
The following rules currently apply:
If you are entering from a "green" country:
- Vaccinated: Proof of vaccination
- Non-vaccinated: Negative PCR test result < 72 hours or antigen test result < 48 hours or a valid certificate of recovery
If you are entering from an "amber" country:
- Vaccinated: Proof of vaccination and a "Déclaration sur l'honneur"
- Non-vaccinated: Compelling reason and negative PCR test result < 72 hours or antigen test result < 48 hours or a valid certificate of recovery as well as a "Déclaration sur l'honneur"
You can find more information on entry here (French only)
Who can enter France via EuroAirport?
As a rule, French citizens can always enter France, as can people who have been vaccinated or who are entering from a country on the "green" list. Entry for unvaccinated persons from an "amber" country is only possible for compelling reasons: www.interieur.gouv.fr/covid-19-deplacements-internationaux. Strict border and document controls remain in place.
Who can leave France via EuroAirport?
Leaving France is no longer subject to any special conditions, except for unvaccinated persons travelling to an "amber" country. Please observe the entry requirements of your country of destination: www.diplomatie.gouv.fr/fr/conseils-aux-voyageurs (French only).

This applies at EuroAirport for all passengers with Swiss citizenship or a residence permit for Switzerland, for all others the French rules apply.
