My fiancée who is an American citizen is travelling to visit me in France. Since I am not an American citizen and am from South Asia, working in France, I have no experience in advising her or searching for "what documentation is necessary" for her to travel to Europe.
I only know from Wikipedia's entry on visa requirements for US citizens, visaHQ's drop down menus and one of the French consulate's website that she is entitled to visa-free travel to France (among a bunch of other countries). I also find that she does not need ESTA.
However, since I have always been subject to visa rules wherever I have travelled, I just wanted to be doubly sure that she was in the clear to travel to Europe/France with ONLY a US passport.
Does she need any other method of authorization or travel document or other recommended documents? What should she carry with her in form of documentation? She is planning on staying here for 3 weeks (~23 days) so I am sure she doesn't need a long stay visa.
- Would my fiancée need travel specific health insurance similar to it being required for South Asians travelling to Europe for tourism?
- What about a certificate of finances? She has minimal finances so would it be ok for me to provide her with my bank statement as I would be doing the "spending"?
