In the current COVID-19 situation, let's say a passenger wants to travel to a Schengen region airport from outside the Schengen region just for transiting airside to a third country outside the EU/Schengen region. (For example: NewDelhi-Paris-Tokyo)

Is that allowed right now? Can it be done without an Schengen visa and are any special documents required?


If the airport has a transit corridor (which Paris-CDG does), and your nationality doesn't require an airport transit visa, then yes, you can transit.

However, for France, you'll need to complete and print this form, to show the airline during boarding. Select this option:

Ressortissant de pays tiers, en transit de moins de 24 heures en zone internationale pour rejoindre son pays d’origine et présentant le titre de voyage vers ce pays

    Your quote is not relevant, because the OP is just in transit to get in a third country (not the pays d'origine) – Giacomo Catenazzi Jul 16 at 12:18

    @GiacomoCatenazzi It's the closest one anyway, and TIMATIC says nothing about non-Schengen -> non-Schengen airport transit being prohibited other than when returning to one's home country. – Crazydre Jul 16 at 12:39
  • I think you mean to suggest that the cited option should be selected (perhaps by ticking or checking), not crossed out. – phoog Jul 17 at 1:27
