Our advice to help you prepare for your trip.
A number of countries have introduced health-related entry restrictions. Details of each country’s regulations can be found in the “conseils aux voyageurs” section of the diplomatie.gouv.fr. website.
Depending on the country you are travelling to, you may be required or recommended to have certain vaccinations or treatments.
For further guidance, consult:
- Your doctor
- Your travel agency
- Your airline
Please note: Animals are also subject to certain health requirements. Remember to have your dog or cat vaccinated against rabies. See our page about travelling with pets.
