Incoming mobility of international students and researchers in the context of the health crisis
Our partner Campus France keeps you updated about the changes that can occur in the reglementations while traveling during the health crisis.
“Decree No. 2020-1310 of October 29, 2020 modified the categories of countries of origin. Only European Union Member States are now included in the list of countries allowing exemption from testing.
International students and researchers coming from outside the European Union must first be tested before their departure; otherwise, they can be tested upon arrival, where systematic testing will be offered. For four countries (United States, Panama, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain), pre-testing remains absolutely mandatory to come to France.
In spite of the changing health situation, students and researchers continue to benefit from an exemption and can continue to come to France while complying with health regulations. International students in France are accompanied and supported by the institutions and the CROUS. All information on measures related to containment in higher education can be found in the MESRI Frequently Asked Questions.“
