COVID-19 Testing Required Before Departure

As of August 1, new entry requirements for France will take effect mandating negative COVID-19 test (PCR test) results before boarding any Air France flight to France. Passengers departing from the United States are required to have a negative COVID-19 test (PCR test) taken 72 hours before departure. Some passengers may qualify for testing upon arrival in France. Please contact the US French Consulate to see if you fit this criteria to get an official permit, to be shown at boarding and arrival in France.

We will continuously update you on 72 hour COVID-19 testing sites near Air France gateways across the US. Testing sites for New York JFK can be found here. Check back for regular updates before departure.
