Please be vigilant when traveling in Paris as pickpockets are common. Many of my friends and even my mother is a victim of theft in Paris.

  1. Hi, just to point out the above rules especially letter of resident only affect those coming to France to visit family members and staying at the family members’ place, as opposed to any Malaysian tourists visiting France. I think KLN’s website was not very clear and they have updated it as I write. The usual requirements are still there: Hotel bookings, sufficient funds and travel insurance. You may want to update your reader again with the correct information. Thanks

  2. hey there
    i just flew out of Paris less than 24 hours ago into London. flew in on 27th dec 2014.. the customs officers didnt even give a hoot and barely looked at my passport on entry.. no immigration forms needed, just hand passport to them, they dont even look at you, give you a stamp and you’re on your way all under the spand of 3 seconds.. you can maybe get the word “Bonjour” in and your passport is back in your hands already..
    this would mostly likely apply to anyone in general in any countries if you look suspicious or if the customs officer you got is a super strict one.. but in all my travels, France customs has been the most “i cant care less” ever

    1. Hi Christy,

      I know what you mean. Even my friends who went to Paris last week are not having any issues at all on entry point.

      However, there is a Malaysian girl who got detained last year for failing to produced such documents and MAYBE that incident prompted the Malaysia Embassy to release this statement.

      Since the officials released and updated the statement, we just share the news so no one will caught up on entry points.

      Thanks for commenting.

  3. Hi thanks for the info. Does it only applies to malaysian travellers from malaysia? I live in england on indefinite leave visa, and about to travel to france in 5 weeks time to visit the in laws. Do I need to prepare them as well? Been going to visit the in laws almost every year and have had no problem so far. But, definitely do not want to get caught up with the french bureau, nastyyy. Thanks in advance

  4. Hi. I will be visiting France in February, but I have not yet purchased travel insurance. Is it really a mandatory requirement? Plus, where can I get a good ones?

  5. Hi. I will be flying to Paris on February, have not purchased any travel insurance. Is it really a requirement, or else so entry into France? If so, please let me know where to get it (reliable ones). Tq!

  6. Hi. Thank you for your reply. I have read the similar news on the star online. Seems like they’re pretty much similar with the Maldives requirements. (hotel bookings, travel insurance and ticket outbound). Now I have no worries 🙂
