On the Air France page, it says that the PCR test is required: "As of August 1, new entry requirements for France will take effect mandating negative COVID-19 test (PCR test) results before boarding any Air France flight to France. Passengers departing from the United States are required to have a negative COVID-19 test (PCR test) taken 72 hours before departure."

So which one is it?

I have transited numerous times in the last 9 months from usa to cdg to BEG and never was asked to show covid-19 test for transit. Only if u need the enter France they will ask. Your link is for when France is your destination and not tasnfer point

Oh Lord. Like Goldorak said, traveling internationally requires a PHD in bureaucracy and political disease.

Thank you for letting me know!

Bolding is mine : entry in France. You are connecting in CDG. I checked in Traveldoc (the system used by AF), and it clearly says that transit pax are exempted of test requirement, providing you stay airside. I post a screenshot here (sorry in French).


in any case, the requirements of your destination country will apply too and most of countries require a test.
If you want a final confirmation, call AF.

If not rebooked immediately, I would wait June to see where it leads to. Like most people said, it is very hard to predict entry/transit rules... However, like what Goldorak said, transit in CDG does not require anything but the destination requirements.
