The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) had issued an Order requiring all air passengers arriving to the US from a foreign country to get tested no more than 3 days before their flight departs and to present the negative result or documentation of having recovered from COVID-19 to the airline before boarding the flight. Air passengers will also be required to confirm that the information they present is true in the form of an attestation.
This Order is effective as of 12:01am EST (5:01am GMT) on January 26, 2021.


All travelers above the age of 10 arriving in France from countries outside of European Union must present a negative PCR test less than 72 hours old in order to board a plane or boat. If you are travelling from one of the few countries where this PCR test cannot be carried out before departure, you must request an exemption from the French consulate in your place of residence, submit to a PCR test upon arrival, and isolate for 7 days in an establishment approved by the authorities.
