IMPORTANT: Travelers need to insure that their passports are valid for at least three months beyond their planned date of departure out of the 26 European countries in the Schengen area. The U.S. State Department also advises Americans to have at least six month’s validity remaining on their passport whenever they travel abroad.

No visa is currently required for travelers from the U.S., U.K., Australia, and Canada to visit France if the visit is less than 90 days. For citizens of the European Union, a national ID card is all that is required. Visitors from countries other than those mentioned above should check with the nearest French consulate or embassy to verify travel formalities.
