The Department of State’s current Travel Advisory for France advises U.S. citizens to exercise increased caution.

Print out our Traveler’s Checklist card and be sure to:

  • ENROLL IN STEP: Enroll in the Department of State’s Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP). This will enable the U.S. Embassy to keep you up-to-date with important safety and security announcements, and help us reach you in an emergency.

Safety and Security

Major events are a prime opportunity for crime. Travelers should:

  • Avoid carrying large amounts of money or other valuables.
  • Secure all purses, wallets, cell phones and electronics while traveling on buses, trains or at train stations - pickpocketing in crowded public places is common.
  • Where possible, leave your passport in a hotel safe or other secure place and only carry a photocopy of your passport with you.

Remember – you are subject to all French laws, which may differ from those in the United States. Even if you violate these laws even unknowingly, you may be arrested.

If we receive information of a threat to private U.S. citizens, the U.S. Embassy will send a Security Alert to the public, which you can receive if you enroll your trip details in our Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) STEP.state.gov.
