The French visa centres here in South Africa are still accepting visa applications for France as per normal.
Lufthansa said its flights to and from Paris were operating as normal. “There are no changes in current flight operations, although passengers may encounter longer waiting times at the security checks as extensive passport controls before departure or upon arrival are conducted in many European airports".
Air France has indicated that identity checks and baggage screening had been reinforced in Europe. “Passengers are requested to arrive at Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport three hours before their flight and ensure they have a valid identity document in their possession”. Increased screening in airport terminals and in exclusion areas around the aircraft had also been put in place by authorities, the airline said.
