    Bonjour, Je voyage avec mes 2 enfants lundi 14 décembre. Nous quittons Accra pour Paris avec une escale à Bruxelles. Le ministère des affaires étrangères français nous a informé que nous pouvions arriver en France sans test PCR, ils seront faits à l’arrivée à Paris. Pouvez-vous confirmer ces informations? Cette absence de tests ne sera pas un problème pour notre escale à Bruxelles? D’avance merci. Maelle Longueville

    Good afternoon!

    In 3rd of July I Have a flight Toronto – Bucharest, with Delta Airlines, flights number AF0351 and DL8476, through Paris. At the beginning of May, I contacted the virus SARS -COV 2. I have the positive test result, with that date, the notice from Health Service for the isolation from 4th of May till 14 of May and also the release letter from isolation.

    In the case that the PCR test made with 72 hours before the flight is positive, due to the infection with this virus at the beginning of May, please tell me if I will be allowed at the airplane with the documents I have or I should have also an antibody test? I would like also to mention, that I am not vaccinated. I will make the vaccine in my origin country, Romania.

    Thank you in advance for your answer.

  • Dobre Camelia

    Hi,

    On July 3 I will fly from Toronto to Bucharest ( Romania). The tichet was purchased through Delta. The flight has a stopover in Paris and the flight numbers are AF 0351 and DL 8476. At beginning of May I was I infected with COVID 19. I was informed that after being positive, further Covid 19 tests might come back positive for up 3 months. I do have proof of my positive test from beginning of May,as well the letter from Health Service that says I need to isolate from May4- May 14 and the letter that says I finished my isolation.

    My question is if this letters will be enough for me to travel in case my PCR test required 72 hours prior my flight will come back positive or something else is required.

    Also , I want to mention that I’m not vaccinated yet, as I will do it after I get back home in Romania.

    Thank you very much
