COVID-19 Travel Policy for French Polynesia

19 March 2020 update:  The French Polynesian Government announced 18 March 2020 (French Polynesia time zone) that non-residents will not be permitted to enter French Polynesia on/before 31 March 2020.  Please note, this policy does not currently apply to transit passengers.


17 March 2020 update:  The French Polynesian Government announced 16 March 2020 (French Polynesia time zone) that all international travellers entering French Polynesia on/before 31 March 2020 must self-isolate for 14 days at home for residents, or in a collective facility provided by the Government.  The self-isolation can only take place on the island of Tahiti or Moorea.  Travel to the islands will only be allowed after the strict 14-day quarantine period. This policy applies to everyone including French Polynesian citizens.  This restriction will be reviewed regularly and can be extended at any time.

Should any symptoms arise during the self-isolation quarantine period, the local health authorities or Centre 15 should be informed immediately.  Dial the number 444 789 while in French Polynesia for any information on the COVID-19 virus.

On-board flights, all passengers will be given a health control survey to be completed.  This survey will be presented to medical personnel upon arrival in French Polynesia.  Passengers will also be monitored by a thermal scanner, designed to detect abnormally high body temperature, at Tahiti's Faa'a International Airport.


Additional Documentation:

Please note that passengers may be required to provide at check-in or onboard the flight, documentation confirming the destination address, telephone number(s), and email address. This information may be used by the local authorities should they need to reach you for any reason.
