Arriving at the Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris, France

Beside the Passport, what other information or documents are required when you arrive at the Charles de Gaulle airport in France? Do you have to show your COVID vaccine documents? Do you have to show a negative COVID certificate? Thanks for your information.

Covid information is checked by your airline at your departure point, long before you ever get to France. (Your airline won't transport you to France if you haven't adhered to French entry rules, because the airline would have to bring you back to the States at their own expense. So they check before they ever let you on the airplane).

To be considered fully vaccinated for France, you must have had a full vaccine regime (two doses of Pfizer or Moderna, or one dose of Janssen), plus an mRNA booster shot (I.e. that shot must be either Pfizer or Moderna).

If you're not fully vaccinated by the French definition, you will need to provide proof of a negative Covid test to board your flight.

Airlines are very diligent and will tell you exactly what they need and you will upload it to them

Hi Sharon, check your airline's website. We flew Delta and their site listed all the info and documents required in order to board.

We just returned from France. Upon our arrival at Charles de Gaulle airport, we were surprised that they had lifted the Covid documentation requirement. We were expecting to show our vaccination cards and sign a statement to confirm that we had not been recently exposed. Not sure when this change went into effect, but we arrived on July 17, 2022 and it was no longer required.

Of course, this may depend on where you are coming from. We flew from US to France via Iceland.
