Location: All France and Monaco
Event: Predeparture COVID-19 test no longer required for travel to the United States.
Effective June 12, 2022, the U.S. Centers for Diseases Control and Prevention (CDC) rescinded the requirement that travelers present a negative COVID-19 test performed within one calendar day before departure to the United States (https://www.cdc.gov/quarantine/fr-proof-negative-test.html). This applies to all travelers, U.S. citizens and foreign nationals alike. Predeparture tests are no longer required.
The order requiring that non-U.S. citizen, non-U.S. immigrant (not a U.S. citizen, U.S. national, lawful permanent resident, or traveling to the United States on an immigrant visa) travelers must show proof of full COVID-19 vaccination remains in effect. As a reminder, this rule applies even if the non-U.S. citizen, non-U.S. immigrant traveler is the spouse, child, or parent of a U.S. citizen or resident.
French government COVID restrictions remain in effect for people who test positive while in France. This includes a requirement for self-isolation of 5-10 days, depending on the traveler’s vaccination status and optional follow-up testing.
