DoD Implements Paris Travel Ban for All Troops & Civilian Personnel

A travel ban is in place for U.S. military personnel planning to go to Paris.

“Unofficial travel to Paris is prohibited — including leave, liberty and special pass — and includes a 50-kilometer radius around the city. The travel restriction, implemented in the aftermath of Friday’s deadly attacks in Paris, applies to all Defense Department personnel, according to a statement from U.S. European Command.

Personnel on official travel or emergency leave to Paris or elsewhere in France will need approval from a general officer, according to EUCOM.

In addition, DoD personnel who wish to go on unofficial travel elsewhere in France will also need approval from a general officer, according to EUCOM.”
