Hi, I am traveling from Detroit to Mumbai with a layover in Paris for 3hrs and 5mins. My US visa stamping has expired. I will be leaving US for India. Do I need a transit visa to make a connecting flight via Paris.
Yes, assuming you are an Indian citizen, since your US Visa is no longer valid you will need a Schengen Airport Transit Visa issued by France.
US Citizen flying from Vienna to Salt Lake City through CDG. Arrival from Vienna Terminal 2D departing from Terminal 2E Connection time is 1 hour 25 minutes. I'll have checked bags. Is this enough time?
Yes, that should be enough time. You just have to go through Schengen Exit Passport Control and to your departure gate.
Hi, I am arriving 2C at 19:30 and leaving from 2F at 21:00 is it enough time with checked bags? Thx

I am looking at flights into CDG where I will need to switch to a flight to Sevilla on Iberia/Vueling. How much time will I need? I'll have to collect my bag first, so will I need to pass through customs, too, or just security?
Forgot to mention that I'm flying into CDG on Air France.
Where are you flying into CDG from?
From Dulles, Washington, D.C.
I would want at least 3 hours. You will have to go through Schengen entry passport control, claim your bags, take the CDGVAL to Terminal 3, re-check your bags with Vueling, and go through security.
lading by Air France from Mumbai @7.35 T2E and departing to St. Maarten @ 10.30 T2F. Hold valid US visa.Do i require transit visa/passport control
Since you hold a valid US visa, no you don't. You will not go through passport control.
Hi!
We're flying from SEA to CDG on Delta without checked bags. Looks like we arrive in 2E, and we head to FCO on Alitalia from terminal 2F. Total layover time of 2.5 hours. It sounds easy enough, but it's our first trip to Europe. Do we do both security check and passport control?
The ticket was one booking through Delta, if that matters.
You will just go through passport control. You have enough time if the flight from Seattle is on-time.
Awesome. Thanks. You are like a CDG wizard.
CDG makes a lot more sense when you actually get there compared to looking at a map. (actually the same could be said of a LOT of things in France).
Flying to Mumbai, India from Toronto via Paris. Arriving at Charles De Gaulle T-2A and departing from T-2C with layover time of 1hr 40 minutes. Is that enough time. Flying Air Canada and Jet Airways (same ticket). Also do I need a transit visa? Indian passport holder studying in Canada.
Since you will presumably be holding a valid visa for Canada, you do not need French airport transit visa. You have enough time.
Hi. Next week we arrive at CDG on a Delta flight from the US at 7:50am and depart on an AF/CityJet flight to Dublin at 9:40am. They were booked through Delta on a single ticket and apparently arrive into and depart from 2E. We are US citizens and will have checked bags. Am I interpreting the CDG website correctly that we will have to go through a security check but not passport control? Do we have to pick up our checked bags, take them through security, and then drop them off again, or will they be transferred for us while we take only our carryons through security? Finally, if both flights are on-time, are we likely to have trouble making this 1hr50min layover in the morning? Thanks for any advice.
Yes, that is plenty of time. Correct you will not go through passport control as you are not entering the Schengen area nor will you claim your bags.
Im traveling from hk to bogota. I have a layover innCDG for 4 hours. Im traveling with my dog as a checked baggage. Do i need to do any docs for my dog for the transit in Paris?
I had only one problem till I didn't come from France– how could I come to necessary place from the airport to have a conference in time if I have nobody to call and ask about a transfer. Fortunately, I had one guy beside me who have had called to book a taxi. That's so excellent that they don't ask me too much money as other taxi which I caught on the road! What do you suppose, will somebody call to this company and ask about a taxi to get even few euro off for their next trip? Just one guy gave me this number +33761430947 or in whatsapp/ viber +38 067 295 73 59, email: info@france-fta.com which helped me to be in time and after gave their mail to booked from info@tur-france.com of mail
I have a connecting flight from Paris at Terminal 2C departing at 11:30 am. I will land at 9:50 am at terminal 2A. Please let me know if this is sufficient time. Also, will I see my gate number easily and will there be any security check in. I am coming from Toronto, Canada holding a Canadian PR card and Indian passport.

My arrival flight is Air Canada and connecting flight is Jet airways.

PS- Its a single booking from Toronto to Mumbai.

Thank you for your help.
You should just have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate. Your departure gate should be on the monitor.
Thanks ZAP. So I assume there won't be any security checks again. right?
I believe since you are coming from Canada there are no security checks.
I have the same connecting flight arriving from Toronto at Terminal 2A and then connecting Saudi Airlines flight departing from 2A. Does anyone know if the boarding passes are issued for the connecting flight in Toronto, or they will be issued in Paris? If the boarding passes are to be obtained in Paris, are they issued at the departure gate like other airports do, or is there some check in counter that we have to go to?

My concern is landing and not making it in time for the connection because of the queue for security checks or clearance apparently going on these days (not referring to passport control / immigration). Or the alternative if the flight is delayed then for sure I will miss my connection. But the second scenario, if it were to occur, would be Air Canada's responsibility. However, if the clearance takes time then I'll be stuck kind of like a catch 22.
Ok while I wrote my initial comment, I was on the phone with Air Canada. Apparently the luggage will go straight through to final destination, and boarding passes for both flights can be issued from Toronto. I hope this is the case because that would save time running from the arrival gate to the departure gate (even if there is a queue for security clearance or passport control).

Still concerned about the connection time of 1 hour 35 minutes.

We are first time international travelers (family of 5) traveling from Chicago to marseille w a 1:50 layover in CDG. We arrive at 8:05 am and depart terminal 2F at 9:55.... booked through KLM but delta is partner out of Chicago.... is this enough time? What all will we have to do? Just passport clearance? I'm panicked.....
Yes, that should be enough time. You just have to go through passport control and to your departure gate.
