Paris Semester Passports & Visas
Passport Validity and Visas for France
Entry into France for short-term tourism (90 days) or business requires that your passport be valid for at least three months beyond your intended date of departure from the Schengen Area. If your passport does not meet the Schengen requirements, you may be refused boarding by the airline at your point of origin or while transferring planes. For this reason, we recommend that your passport have at least six months’ validity remaining whenever you travel abroad.
Students will need a valid passport and long-term visitor visa for which each student applies through a consular office in the U.S. months in advance of travel.
