France reopens gradually its borders for incoming students from June 15th, international students a priority

On June 15, France announced a plan to progressively welcome European & international students on its territory

Written on 17 Jun 2020.


 

From June 15th, all restrictions on movement at its European internal borders (land, air and sea), which have been applied to fight the COVID-19 pandemic, are lifted. People arriving from the European Union Member States as well as Andorra, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Monaco, Norway, San Marino, Switzerland and the Vatican are able to enter French territory without COVID-19-related restrictions. According to the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs, these travelers are no longer required to have an exempted international travel certificate to enter France and from the 14-day quarantine upon their arrival in France.

Starting on July 1st, International students will be allowed to travel to France, regardless of their countries of origin, and visa procedures will be facilitated, says the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. This will occur gradually and in a differentiated manner depending on the health situations in third countries, and in line with the European procedures to be issued by that time. Visa and resident permit applications will be processed as a priority.
