United States European Command has implemented travel restrictions to France that apply to all Department of Defense (DoD) personnel. Specifically, unofficial travel (leave, liberty and special pass) to France is prohibited. This prohibition is for unofficial travel to Paris, and includes a 50-kilometer radius around the city. Official travel and emergency leave travel to France requires approval from the first general/flag officer or SES in the chain of command. This EUCOM policy applies to U.S. military personnel, DOD civilian employees, contractors and command-sponsored dependents and family member. These restrictions do not apply to military personnel assigned to diplomatic posts in France.
