Some important travel requirements
- Valid ID mandatory for France:
Due to the security situation in Paris and the state of emergency declared in France, the authorities require you to be in possession of a valid identification document when travelling to, from or via any airport in France. A driver’s license for instance is not considered as a valid identification document.
- Changing entry rules for Canada:
Travellers to or via Canada are expected to show an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) before boarding their flight. Although it is not yet mandatory until 1 October 2016, we recommend that you apply for an eTA online via the website of the Canadian authorities . This rule does not apply to document holders of the United States or travellers with a valid visa for Canada.
