Airport Transit Visa for France

Since recently, travellers of Philippine or Central African Republic nationality who travel via France on a Marine or Offshore ticket are obliged to have an Airport Transit Visa (ATV) for France. The ATV is required if they travel via France to another non-Schengen country. If they have a Schengen visa, this obligation does not apply.

Standard exemptions
The following passengers are exempted from the Airport Transit Visa requirement:
– Passengers travelling to or from a non-Schengen country who have a visa issued by Bulgaria, Canada, Croatia, Cyprus, Ireland, Japan, Rumania, the United States of America or the United Kingdom. 
– Passengers who have a residence permit issued by Andorra, Bulgaria, Canada, Croatia, Cyprus, Ireland, Japan, Rumania, San Marino, the United States of America or the United Kingdom.

In addition, it is recommended that passengers with the above-mentioned nationalities travel on a valid short-stay visa (Type C). Regulations applying to seafaring passengers are still under discussion.
