We encourage you to visit the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to acquaint yourself with the most recent laws which apply to your country of destination.
FOR INFORMATION PURPOSES, please be advised that an E111 form must be sought from your social security agency. As is the case in France, you must have a road safety kit (2 warning triangles and a fluorescent vest) in your vehicle.
For Spain, Italy and Portugal (the only exception is Croatia because it is not part of the Schengen Agreement):
For EU nationals: passport or identity card
The following countries are full members of the Schengen Area: Germany, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Spain, Estonia, Finland, France,
Greece, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, the Czech Republic
and Sweden (Ireland and the United Kingdom are not members), in addition to Iceland, Norway and Switzerland (which are not members of the European Union).
Cyprus, which joined the EU in 2004, as well as Bulgaria and Romania, which joined in 2007, are not yet fully signed up to the Schengen Agreement.
You must therefore present a valid passport or identity card to enter these countries; the same applies to Ireland and the United Kingdom.
You must be carrying a valid passport or identity card to enter and leave the EU.
We advise you to carry one of these two documents with you when travelling in Europe, so that you can provide proof of your identity in the event that you are asked to do so by the authorities.
Checks at internal borders may temporarily be in force for reasons of public order or national security.
The children accompanying you must have their own passport or identity card, or be listed on your passport.
- Passport or identity card:
For a tourist stay of less than three months, a valid passport or identity card are required of French and European Union nationals.
Entry into and travelling within Croatia with a passport or identity card is permitted up to the expiration date of these documents.
All minors must have a valid personal passport or identity card (for European Union nationals), or else be listed on the passport of their parents or of their guardians. For minors who have a surname which is different to their parent(s), it is advised that they obtain a multilingual birth certificate issued by the local authorities of their place of birth.
- Visa requirements:
No visas are necessary for the 27 members of the EU: French and EU nationals do not require a visa to enter Croatia.
Nationals from countries where a visa is required: any foreign national, whether adult or minor, from the countries listed on the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and European Integration of the Republic of Croatia (http://www.mvep.hr/en/ - also consult the unofficial list on the embassy's website) must make a request in person for a visa at our consulate in order to enter Croatia.
Please note: permission to leave the territory is compulsory for all minors who leave mainland France without their parents, as well as a valid national identity card (or passport).
