Documents d’identité pour prendre l’avion

Identification documents

Depending on your destination you should be in possession of a valid identity card or passport. In certain cases a visa is also required. Without these documents access to the plane may be denied as well as entry to your destination. 

To be informed about the necessary documents please consult the government website.

Since the 1st of January 2014 the validity of the French national identity card has been extended from 10 to 15 years for adults, without the necessity of supplementary procedures.

If your adult identity card was issued between 2nd of January 2004 and the 31 December 2013, the extension of 5 years is automatic. To check if you are concerned by this extension, please consult the government website.

Identity cards for minors remain valid for 10 years from their date of issue.
