Passport/Visa

France can be visited visa-free for up to 90 days by citizens of Australia, New Zealand, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Malaysia, Israel, UAE and most countries in America. If you are unsure whether or not you need to apply for a visa, we recommend contacting the embassy or consulate in your country. International (non-Schengen) travelers need a passport that is valid for at least 3 months after the end of their intended trip in order to enter the Schengen zone. Citizens of Schengen countries can travel without a passport, but must have a valid ID with them during their stay.

Airport

Airport

The Bastia-Poretta Airport (BIA) is Upper Corsica's main international airport, located 17 kilometres to the southeast of Bastia, in the municipality of Lucciana. There is a simple shuttle service that runs from the airport to the Bastia train station (the journey takes about 35 minutes). Another option is to take a taxi from in front of the terminal to whatever your destination may be. The smaller Calvi-Sainte-Catherine Airport (CLY) is located just 6 kilometres from Calvi and operates mostly seasonal flights from Europe. To get to the city from the airport, visitors will have to take a taxi, as there are no buses.

Renting a car is the best way of getting around and is recommended for convenience if you plan to explore the island.
