Health Alert – U. S. Embassy Paris, France  (August 2, 2022)

Location: All France

Event: End of French COVID-related entry requirements.  The government of France has announced that as of August 1, it has ended all COVID-related entry requirements for France.  Travelers no longer require proof of vaccination or a negative test to enter France.  In addition, the health/vaccine pass has been eliminated for all locations.  Masks are no longer mandatory, but French authorities highly recommend them for public transportation and entry into medical facilities.  Businesses, including medical facilities, may still require visitors to wear masks.

As a reminder, U.S. vaccine requirements remain in place for non-U.S. citizens and non-green card holders traveling to the United States.  This includes spouses and children of U.S. citizens, who must still meet the vaccination requirements.  See the CDC website for further information.

Actions to Take:

  • Consult a medical professional if you have been in direct contact with an infected person within the past three weeks and have symptoms.
  • Visit CDC’s website
  • Check the entry requirements for other nations you may visit on your trip and consider bringing proof of vaccination in case you are rerouted through a country that continues to have a vaccine requirement
