Overnight stay in Paris on the way home to U.S. -- No quarantine??

Greetings:
Traveling home from Romania to the U.S. and might have to stay over night in Paris due to the flight time from Paris to ATL.

I have 2 Passports---U.S. and Romanian. Will I have any issues (forced quarantine, etc.) in staying overnight in a Paris hotel since I am just in transit??

Please advise.

Thank you.

My reading of the current IATA guidelines is that you will not be allowed to enter France.

Good question, no way on your US passport but possibly your Romanian.

I'd contact the Romanian embassy in France and see what they say.

Definitely can if in possession of a US passport, and you have to use that passport when you check in with the airline flying you to the US (if you are on a through ticket, you will need to ensure that the second airline has the US passport in its system, not the Romanian one). Entering France on the Romanian one should be possible but worth checking at the French Embassy in Romania. Generally, intra-Europe flights won't match the data the airline holds on passports to your arrival, but the airline won't transport you if it knows that you won't be let in to your destination country. Therefore, if on a through ticket, you may need to show both passports.
