Relocation Update from France

June 10, 2020

NEER Service France Reports:

As advised in our previous newsletter domestic, European and international moves can now take place without restriction. Both customers and our moving crews follow the strict sanitary measures, social distancing requirements and our crews wear masks.  

 

Customers are required to self-certificate using this form to confirm that they are not suffering any symptoms of COVID-19, before their move.

 

People are also now permitted to view new homes for sale or rent.

 

The largest issue to full mobility remains international air travel.  Passengers from non-Schengen Member States are still not allowed to enter France.  Passengers arriving from a non-Schengen Member State are not allowed to enter France.  This rule does not apply to EU, Swiss and British Nationals returning home to France or people with a residence permit issued by French authorities.

 

The lack of flights is also impacting air freight rates which remain extremely high.  Air France expects to open more than 30 international traffic lanes by the end of June that should assist travel and reduce air freight costs.
