From 17 March, measures are in place in France to ensure that anyone who leaves their home does so only for essential purposes. These are listed on the self-declaration form which you must fill in and present to police upon request. Failure to do so may result in a fine of up to €135. If you do not have a printer, you may handwrite the declaration or generate a form on your smartphone through the Interior Ministry website. If you are travelling home, make sure you have proof of travel with you. 

If you are entering France from abroad for transit or travel home, you must fill in the “attestation de déplacement international” form before you travel. This form is available on the French Interior Ministry’s website here.
