Documents needed when entering France
Whether or not you are required to obtain a visa before travelling, even if you are an American citizen, you may be requested to show the following elements to the French immigration officers upon arrival :
- a valid passport (still valid 3 months after your expected return from France),
- a return plane ticket (for a short stay only),
- means of support during the stay (cash, credit cards, traveler cheques...)
- accommodation reservations or, for some visa holders only, an "attestation d’accueil"
