COVID-19 Travel Policy for French Polynesia

Mandatory health measures and entry requirements for French Polynesia


The current regulations for entry to French Polynesia require that each traveller:

  • Present at check-in, proof of a negative COVID-19 test (RT-PCR) performed within 3 days of your flight departure.   To facilitate the check-in process the airline encourages passengers to send the airline the results of the medical test via our online COVID-19 form.
  • Complete an itinerary information document
  • Complete a Sanitary Entry Form via the Electronic Travel Information System (ETIS) that can be located on the Tahiti Tourisme website.  This is a statement of commitment to follow sanitary measures and reporting to the authorities of any symptom of COVID-19 that may occur during your stay (cough, fever, difficulty to breathe, loss of taste, loss of smell). You must also subject yourself to the randomised test which may be imposed by the health authorities of French Polynesia during your stay.
  • Hold in your possession a travel insurance policy covering expenses related to COVID-19, or agree to pay out of pocket expenses for any medical, hospital, quarantine-related or repatriation costs, should the traveller become infected with SARS-CoV-2 during their stay.  NB. not applicable for citizens of French Polynesia. 


If you fail to comply with any of the above mandatory health measures, you will not be allowed to board the aircraft.
