These are your dream countries where you can go without a passport

The holidays are approaching, and the French without a valid passport are wondering if they can travel abroad, while the deadlines for obtaining a valid passport are getting longer. About forty countries will accept them with a simple ID.

Since the health crisis, delays in obtaining an identity document have exploded in France. It now takes an average of two months To obtain his passport or identity card for two to three weeks in normal times. But the holidays may not end.

There are already about forty countries that you can go to with a simple ID. First, of course, the 26 countries of the European Union, but with their overseas territories and there are many of them.

As for France, there are already the West Indies (Guadeloupe, Guyana, Martinique), but there are also the islands of Mayotte, New Caledonia, French Polynesia, Saint Barthelemy, Saint-Pierre and Miquelon, or the islands of Wallis and Futuna. For St Maarten, be careful if you arrive via Princess Juliana International Airport, located on the Dutch side. You will need a passport because this part of the island is not a European territory in the Schengen area. It will therefore be necessary to pass through Grand Case Esp√©rance Airport. Let’s not forget of course Corsica and its turquoise waters.

Warning for destinations where a stopover is required in a country where a passport is necessary, such as Polynesia for example.

Turkey, Tunisia and Egypt

Outside France, an ID card will be sufficient for Sardinia and Sicily in Italy, Madeira and the Azores in Portugal, the Canary Islands and Balearic Islands in Spain and Crete in Greece.

It is also possible to access European countries outside the EU but in the Schengen area without a passport. Among these countries, there are Switzerland, Norway, Iceland, Albania, Andorra, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Montenegro, Macedonia, Liechtenstein, and why not Monaco.

Finally, some countries outside of Europe allow European citizens to enter with a simple ID. This is the case of Turkey with an ID card valid for 150 days from the date of entry, Tunisia and Egypt with a validity of 6 months from the date of return and a visa whose application must be submitted at least 7 days before departure.
