RENEWING YOUR TRAVEL DOCUMENTS

On occasions, a surge in the number of renewal requests for passports (or identity cards) can result in delays in processing the request. To ensure that you get your new travel documents on time for your trip, it is advisable to:

  • check the expiry date of your passport (or identity card) 
  • submit an application for a renewal (if necessary):          

- from the town hall (in France) where you live to request a new identity card

- from a town hall (in France) that has biometric measuring equipment if you need a new passport

A new passport or identity card may be applied for any time during the three months leading up to the document's expiry date.

A list of the documents needed (in France) is provided on the website of the French ministry for interior affairs, overseas territories and immigration:

  • Identity card:

Air passenger right

The European Union has laid down common rules regarding compensation and assistance for passengers. This regulation came into force on 17 February 2005 and extends the scope of the protection offered to passengers and strengthens their rights.

As part of a large-scale awareness-raising campaign, the European Commission has published a brochure entitled "Air passenger rights" which summarises the main features of the current legislation in this area. This brochure is available in all airports.

For more information, go to the website of the European commission
