Visas & Passports

Every person entering France should be in possession of a valid passport and/or identification card (except for members of the Schengen Area for who the identification card may be sufficient).

Some countries require a visa. Please contact the nearest French Embassy or Consulate to your home for further information.

US citizens who are staying for less than 90 days for tourism, business or family visit do not need a visa, but do need a passport with an expiration date of greater than 6 months after the travel dates.  

Further information on citizens of countries that do not require a visa to enter France may be found at https://www.diplomatie.gouv.fr/en/coming-to-france/
