New rules went into effect yesterday for travelers from the US to France. A negative ANTIGEN or PCR test is now needed for folks arriving Saturday Dec 4 or after. The antigen test must test for the N protein which I think most of the Antigen tests in the US do but you should ask. The proctored home test kits are NOT acceptable at this time as they are not available in France.
Here is the link to the official French Government site:
Here is the translation based on opening it in MIcrosoft Edge. I've copied only the part pertaining to those traveling from the US (the previous 2 paragraphs pertain to those traveling from Africa or the EU):
"3 ° Any person twelve years or more wishing to travel to the national territory from a foreign country other than those mentioned in 1 ° and 2 ° must be provided with the result of a test or screening examination mentioned in 1 ° of article 2-2 carried out less than 48 hours before the trip;"4 ° Any person of twelve years or more wishing to travel to the national territory from a foreign country must also be in possession of a declaration on his honor attesting that he accepts that a test or a biological examination of virological screening for the detection of SARS-CoV-2 can be carried out on arrival."For the application of this IV, the only antigenic tests that can be performed are those allowing the detection of the SARS-CoV-2 N protein."
So...for anyone going to France for Christmas or New Years, this is pertinent to you in order to get in to the country.
Let me know if anyone has questions - I'm working hard to stay current on the rules.
