Documents and formalities – France

Reporting presence for short stays (<3 months)

France

Reporting presence for short stays

Under French law, EU citizens and their family members are not required to report their presence on arrival in France. This means they don't have to make a statement of any kind to the authorities.

All EU citizens with a valid passport or identity document are entitled to enter France and spend a period of time there - regardless of the reason for the visit, e.g.

  • tourism
  • training course
  • internship
  • short-term employment.

They are, however, expected to have sufficient resources to cover their needs (and those of any accompanying family members) during their stay.
