Advice about passge in CDG terminal 2

So i leave for my trip in 2 days, and the only thing that has me worried is the transfer that occurs in CDG.

I have a little less than 2 hours to get from 2e to 2D. If I am understanding correctly I will need to go through immigeration when I leave 2e, and I assume another security checkpoint when I get into 2D. Not to mention the travel time in between.

Will 2 hours be enough?

Also would it be quicker taking the shuttle or walking (I understand the route is clearly marked)

Thanks for the help

2 hours should be more than enough. Immigration usually moves quickly and unlike the security at other sections that I've been through I have never had to wait more than a few minutes at 2D.

Just follow the signs and you'll be fine, the walk shouldn't take more than 15-20 minutes. I too used to worry about transfer at CDG, but with remodeling and improved signage it has become much easier the last few years.

I had a 2E to 2D transfer with just a layover of 1H10Mins, without any problems.

You have to go through security obviously, but not necessarily immigration that depends on your destination.

- Walking often faster at CDG

- Immigration at CDG if your connecting flight goes to a Schengen area destination

- No luggage collection if you are on one single ticket

- 2 hours OK if one one ticket, challenging of on two tickets
