Travel restrictions in France

On Monday the 17th of March 2020, the French government has put into place rules and restrictions concerning travel.

The information on this page is subject to change. Please check with the official French government web site for the latest official news.

To travel anywhere in France you must have the document called ATTESTATION DE DÉPLACEMENT DÉROGATOIRE

You must complete this form carry it with you when you leave your house. One form per person in your group (spouse, child etc). This document is signed on your “honour”.

You can be asked to produce this document at any time when you are not at home. Fines (135 Euro) are in place and being applied. If your reason for travel is not valid, insufficient or unjustified you will be told to go home.

(Simply having a copy of this form on your mobile phone is not good enough).

The form can be downloaded using the button below.

If you cannot print it, you should copy the content freehand on to paper.
