A French couple, one of whom worked in the office of Culture Minister Fleur Pellerin, were among the thousands of people reported dead after the 7.9-magnitude quake, Foreign Affairs Minister Laurent Fabius announced on Monday.
The two were on holiday and more French tourists are feared to have died, notably one who was seen falling into a river.
"We have located 1,400 French nationals safe and sound and, notably, we have just found eight trekkers about whom we had serious worries," Fabius said.
The latest death toll at Friday midday Paris time was 3,700.
The French authorities are still trying to track down 676 French citizens, many of whom were on holiday, he added.
Another 10 have been injured.
The ministry sent a first team of 11 rescue workers on Sunday evening and hopes to send an airplane carrying aid "as soon as possible", on Monday or Tuesday, he said, and several French-based NGOs have sent workers and aid.
