French Polynesia: Evolution of Measures taken by the Government

 We recommend to all people over the age of 70 who suffer from chronic or respiratory diseases, to people with disabilities, to reschedule their trip
to French Polynesia as much as possible.

Since March 9th, 2020, it is highly recommended that all passengers (including airline crew) traveling to/via French Polynesia present a medical certificate, or a doctor’s certificate, dated within 5 days of departure and certifying that the passenger is not presenting any clinical sign of detectable infection. This measure will be applicable until March 31st, 2020 included, from which date the government will decide to possibly extend the measure.

Health Assessment Required for Travelers arriving in French Polynesia

  1. If the passenger has a valid medical or doctor’s certificate, he will be allowed to board. Upon arrival at Tahiti-Faa’a airport, he will have to submit a health survey previously completed on board the flight and a simple temperature control will also be carried out. If the passenger follows all these instructions, he will be authorized to leave the airport and continue his trip.
  2.  If the passenger does not present any medical or doctor’s certificate, he will nevertheless be authorized to embark. Upon arrival at Tahiti-Faa’a airport, he will have to submit a health survey previously completed on board the flight and he will undergo a medical examination which might delay his exit:

1. If his medical examination is normal, he will be authorized to leave the airport and continue his trip.
2. If his medical examination is abnormal, he will be put on health surveillance for 14 days.
