Open-ended trip to France? Entry and passport questions

Jump to last reply

My husband is retiring in September and we are planning to go back to France -- but this time wondering about just buying a 1-way ticket to France from Canada because he would really like to not have a pre-decided return date. We know that changing business class tickets is VERY expensive and buying an open ticket is REALLY expensive. I know we can only stay 3 months without needing to register in France and we aren't likely to be there longer than 6 weeks anyway.

I am wondering if we are allowed to enter with just a 1-way ticket. Of note is that my husband is a dual citizen (Britain and Canada) and can hold a British Passport. Does that make a difference?

I'd hate to arrive at CDG and be told we can't enter the country because we don't have a return ticket!!

Thanks for your help...
