Requirements for Israelis

France is one of the most popular countries for travelers. However, before you can book your ticket to Paris, there is an important change that will be coming soon and affecting many travelers who wish to visit the country – including Israelis traveling to France.

France, along with other Schengen countries, has adopted the ETIAS authorization, which stands for European Travel Information and Authorization System. This is a new measurement aimed to increase border security and filter out terrorist threats.

Medical Information for Israelis

medical information

Although France is a safe country, having insurance while traveling ensures a stress-free vacation.

We recommend all travelers to obtain medical insurance (also known as travel insurance) before traveling to France. Travel insurance is a fantastic thing to have in case something goes wrong, and will take care of medical bills – large or small – if something were to happen. Ideally, your travel insurance should include ambulance transportation, emergency room fees, hospital stays, and medical evaluations.

France has a system where travelers may be required to pay upfront for medical services before they can receive treatment. Your insurance provider may reimburse you after you fill out and submit a treatment form (also known as a “Feuille de Soins”). If you are unable to pay for medical treatment in France, however, you may be refused treatment.

If you need to reach the French Emergency Medical Services, you can do so by dialing 15 or 122 and be connected to an operator.
