If you’re traveling to France to take in the Euro 2016 tournament that begins on Friday, make sure you take your Passport or Identity Card. Otherwise you might be watching the tournament in your living room back home.
Just short of suspending Schengen, France will require a valid passport or National ID Card for anyone entering the country ahead of the tournament. This includes rail, road and airport entry points into France as well as Basel Airport in Switzerland due to its location on the French border.
According to French officials, drivers licenses will not be considered an acceptable form of ID for the purpose of entering France.
