visas – Can my wife travel alone to France on EU settlement family permit?

The question appears to be about visas rather than COVID-19 travel restrictions. Your wife needs a separate visa to enter France.

Before the UK left the EU, she would have been able to travel to France using a “residence card of a family member of a union citizen.” But the EEA family permit (the document that was analogous to the EU Settlement Scheme family permit) did not confer an exemption from the visa requirement. Furthermore, the residence permit that she will eventually receive under the EUSS will not entitle her to enter the Schengen area without a visa, because the UK is no longer a member of the EU.

As others have noted, you should also pay close attention to COVID-19 travel restrictions, both those imposed by France and those imposed by the UK.

france – Intra-Schengen travel in April 2021

In terms of visa, it shouldn’t be an issue as long as the visa is valid (and ideally that the “main purpose” of your travel remains in the country which issued the visa), though expect passport/visa checks while travelling between Greece and France, contrary to normal Schengen rules.

However, in terms of the ever-changing Covid restrictions:

  • France is currently under lockdown. All bars, restaurants, museums, malls, non-essential shops, etc. are closed.

  • You are not allowed to travel within France.

  • You need to have a PCR test less than 72 hours old

  • You need to present a signed declaration

I believe Iceland is no longer under lockdown, but they do have a quarantine regime in place. Italy is in lockdown.

Basically, definitely not the right time to do sightseeing…

Exit conditions for France for dual French-Tunisian citizen

Can a person with a french passport and a tunisian passport

Go from Paris to Tunisia.

To visit family. I’m reading the below and am really scared.

https://www.diplomatie.gouv.fr/fr/le-ministere-et-son-reseau/actualites-du-ministere/informations-coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-declarations-et-communiques/article/communique-assouplissement-des-conditions-d-entree-et-de-sortie-du-territoire

france – Is leisure travel a valid reason to get a second French passport?

I have an ordinary French passport, which expires in a few years. I am looking into getting a second French passport to make it possible to cross borders while my first passport is stuck in some postal service warehouse or at some embassy for visa purpose.

https://www.service-public.fr/particuliers/vosdroits/F21517 states:

En principe, vous ne pouvez pas avoir plusieurs passe ports français. Toutefois, un second passeport peut exceptionnellement être délivré dans 2 situations : si votre passeport est immobilisé pendant une période de voyage ou si le passeport risque de faire apparaître des destinations incompatibles.

https://translate.google.com:

In principle, you cannot have more than one French passport. However, a second passport can exceptionally be issued in 2 situations: if your passport is immobilized during a period of travel or if the passport risks showing incompatible destinations.

So my case seems to fit the first case “if your passport is immobilized during a period of travel”. Must these travel be for business or in some other way compulsory, or is leisure travel a valid reason to get a second passport?

Note that 2 travels have to be considered:

  1. The future travel causing the passport to be immobilized (e.g., passport stuck at embassy waiting for visa)
  2. The current travel causing need to have a passport in one’s pocket to cross the borders.

Therefore, I wonder whether it is ok that both travels are leisure, and if not, whether it is ok that 1 out of 2 travels is leisure and if so which one.

I am asking as https://www.service-public.fr/particuliers/vosdroits/F21517 is unclear on it. Later on the page they say “immobilized for a period during which you must travel” (emphasis is mine), which made me wonder whether leisure travel is ok:

Votre passeport peut être immobilisé pendant une période au cours de laquelle vous devez voyager. Par exemple, le passeport peut être conservé par le consulat pour une demande de visa alors que vous en avez besoin pour voyager.

https://translate.google.com:

Your passport may be immobilized for a period during which you must travel. For example, the passport can be kept by the consulate for a visa application when you need it for travel.

france – In which conditions is one’s French ID card not a proof of one’s French citizenship?

I right on some French embassy website:

La carte nationale d’identité est un document officiel qui permet à tout citoyen de justifier de son identité et, sous certaines conditions, de sa nationalité française.

translate.google.com:

The national identity card is an official document which allows any citizen to prove their identity and, under certain conditions, their French nationality.

In which conditions is one’s French ID card not a proof of one’s French citizenship?


Example of a French ID card:

enter image description here

The content of the red rectangle means “French citizenship”.

covid 19 – Flying to Geneva — can I enter France without entering Switzerland first?

I’m asking because Switzerland has different Covid restrictions than France

Usually you will be exempt from Swiss requirements if you are directly transiting to another country.

Current testing and quarantine obligations in Switzerland explicitly exempt transit passengers who will only enter Switzerland to reach another country.

Of course, the PCR requirement for boarding your flight does not distinguish between passengers of different destinations. For any flight-related restrictions you will need to follow Swiss rules (unless it is a domestic French flight within the French sector).

At the moment, the PCR test requirement does not differ much between Switzerland and France, but this may change in coming months (although I think it’s unlikely).


As other answers noted, you will still need to pass Swiss immigration and legally you will be in Switzerland and subject to all Swiss laws. For your specific concerns however, Switzerland currently does not impose public health measures at border for transit passengers, except those concerning air travel.
